The New England Sci-Tech Amateur Radio Society will meet on-line and in-person on August 29, 2023 at 7 PM and feature: “2m – 70cm Satellite Dish Slot Antennas” by John Portune, W6NBC.
Description: Have you ever wondered if you could hide a 2m – 70 cm base antenna in a television satellite dish? By cutting a slot antenna into the reflector of a TV satellite dish, neighbors and homeowner associations are unlikely to notice it and, even if they do, federal Law prevents them from telling you to take it down.
