February Meeting: HF Propagation

Which bands are open right now? Which would be the best choice to Europe? Will things get a lot better when we get into the new sunspot cycle? These are some of the questions that folks chasing DX and miscellaneous awards frequently ask. When it comes to propagation, we live in a time when there are lots of information sources on the internet plus some useful tools we can put in our computers.

Our February UARC meeting, to be held Thursday, February 13, will feature Jed Petrovich, AD7KG, a serious DX'er and one who has explored the tools available for understanding HF propagation. Jed gave us an interesting presentation two years ago and may pick up where he left off.

The meeting will take place Thursday, February 13, at 7:30 P.M., in room 1230 of the Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus. Parking is available across the road to the east of the building. Do not park in the spaces immediately east of the building unless you have a handicapped pass.

Except for July and August, UARC meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 P.M.

See the map for information on finding the building. The parking lots you can use are outlined in green. The room number varies depending on availability.

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

  • Availability of ARRL books from Rick, the bookseller
  • An opportunity to join UARC or renew your membership
  • An opportunity to join ARRL or renew your membership
  • The chance to meet face-to-face the people you talk to on the air
  • The “Meeting after the meeting”: A chance to enjoy pizza or other gastronomic delights with other hams. It happens at Litza's Pizza, 716 E. 400 South.
  • The “Meeting before the meeting”: A similar get-together for those who can leave work early enough to get there by 5:15 P.M. These are held at “The Village Inn,” 910 E. 400 South.
