The Club is again producing a quarterly newsletter that can be viewed here above using the link. Our Newsletter Editor, Ted     Asmus, K8UKE,  is a volunteer, and is looking for short articles (50 to 150 words long) that we can put in the Clubs newsletters.  We know that many of you can easily write these. 

Here are some of the topics we would like you write about, however, others are certainly welcome and appreciated:

...Why do you need an antenna tuner for HF
...What's the difference between a good swr meter and a less expensive one

...Can you do CQ DXing with digital vhf.  Will anyone answer you?
...Test, how far can you "get out" with a yagi on vhf.
...How do different antennas compare on the same vehicle re SWR
...How long will a VHF last on two 6 volt lantern batteries
...How you can use a CB SWR meter for VHF...is it worth the bother?
