The next SCARC meeting will be on Thursday December 4, 7:30pm at the 4H building on the Iowa State University Campus at 13th and Stange in Ames.

The program will be a presentation by Dan Miller, KC0FRL, who is the Polk County ARES EC. The title of Dan’s talk is “The Use of E.N.V.I.S. Antennas.”

E.N.V.I.S. stands for Emergency Near Vertical Incidence Skywave and such antennas are also known as NVIS antennas. The purpose of such antennas is to provide radiation at higher angles to enhance local communications ability on HF.
