K1IG: “Giant Antennas of the Navy” at PART of Westford Meeting Online, April 20, 2021

PART of Westford logoGeorge Allison, K1IG, writes on the PART of Westford mailing list:
The January [PART of Westford] meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, beginning at 7:30 PM via Webex video conference.  


The presentation will be “Giant Antennas of the Navy” given by George, K1IG. When you’ve got to maintain continuous world-wide communications with ships and submarines, ordinary antennas just won’t work. The Navy’s antenna dimensions are measured in miles, not meters (this includes the vertical dimension), and handle megawatts of power. You may recognize some of the designs, but theyre bigger, a LOT BIGGER, than any ham has used. Attend our meeting and see what they look like!

73, George  K1IG
