Weak Signal Meteor Scatter

Amateur radio operator Tony Giaimo, Jr., K1VUV, will present a talk on Weak Signal Meteor Scatter at the Queen Anne’s Amateur Radio Club March meeting. Communicating over great distances via Very High Frequency (VHF) continues to fascinate many amateurs. Earth-Moon-Earth (EME) communication, also known as “moonbounce,” meteor scatter, and VHF code distance contacts are some of the techniques used.

Non-club members, club members, and others interested in learning about weak signal meteor scatter and about the club are invited to the meeting on 6 March at 6 pm at the Queen Anne’s County Free Library, 121 S. Commerce Street, Centreville.

The club will begin preliminary plans for two major events in June. The club will host a Hamfest in QAC open to all ham operators and others with an interest in electronics and computers. Plans will also get underway for club participation in the annual Field Day contest and demonstration.
