June Meeting: Propagation

Which band should you try in order to work France in the afternoon? Knowing how to find the answer requires some knowledge of HF propagation and the tools and information sources available. At the June 13 UARC meeting, Jed Petrovich, AD7KG, will be telling us all about understanding HF propagation and the different effects of day versus night, summer versus winter, and sunspot maximum versus sunspot minimum.

Jed will be giving us a propagation presentation at our June 13 meeting and will show us some of the computer tools available to demystify the sometimes erratic behavior of our ionosphere and how they can help us get more out of our HF operation.

The meeting will take place Thursday, June 13th at 7:30 P.M. Location is the Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus, room 1230.

UARC meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month in the Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus. The room number varies with availability. See the map for information on finding the building.

Of course, the meeting will include the “standard” meeting features:
