Jim, K4JWA, demonstrated his DX Engineering coax preparation tools and Jack, N8DX, demonstrated the K3LR method of PL-259 installation. I think several folks picked up some tips on how to install that pesky connector.
The meeting was scheduled to be from 1 to 3 p.m. I showed up at 12:20 p.m. to set things up and found Eric, K8OHZ, was already there. In just minutes, Pete, K4OM, and Bob, WV8BL, showed up. A half dozen or more were eating their lunch well before 1 p.m. I tried to finish up the meeting close to 3 p.m. but it was after 4 before I left. At that time, Tim, K8RRT, and Jack, N8DX, were heavily involved in antenna discussions. Then, they retired to the parking lot where Jack demonstrated his tennis ball launcher. I sure wish the rest of us could have seen that. Tim said the tennis ball reached an amazing height on just 20 psi.
So, as always, the WVDXA had a fantastic meeting. We missed those who could not attend and look forward to seeing them the next time.
