Our club has a small but growing cache of equipment available for check-out by members. Check out will be for a maximum of 1 month – generally meeting to meeting.
The Club has a portable station available for loan to members. With the Covid-19 pandemic, the station has been available most of the time. If you would like to borrow it, please reach out to us and we'll get you on the schedule. The Station consists of an Icom IC-7300 (HF + 6m rig), a Kenwood TMV71A (this is a mobile VHF/UHF rig), a diamond X50A VHF/UHF antenna, and a mast. The gear is expertly mounted in a hard case and the station includes a power supply, wire end fed half wave antennas (20m and 40m). These are great assets of the Club and may help you decide on your next radio.
We have also recently acquired tools for Powerpole connectors. Everyone should benefit from using these.
