    July Meeting
    Tue 5-Jul-2016, 7.30-10pm
    Oaklands Museum, Moulsham Street
    "Antennas"
    By Justin Johnson G0KSC

    Local amateur and entrepreneur Justin G0KSC (InnovAntennas, W&S, Force-12) will present a talk on antenna design including novel Yagis. Justin is a well known for his pioneering and very successful work including modelling and optimisation for low noise and sidelobes - as well as the materials to make the real thing!

    In March 2016, Justin was awarded the '1962 Committee Cup' by the RSGB for his contributions to VHF antennas and in particular the development and publishing of the LFA antenna design.

    CARS will also have its famous raffle and refreshments on hand as well.

    All are welcome for what should be a well presented and fascinating insight.

    Directions / Parking

    You can drive all the way up Moulsham Street from Parkway but NOT the other way.

    Another way is to enter Moulsham Street after going round the Miami Roundabout (by Tesco), then along New London Road 200 yards, turn right into Moulsham Street and after 100 yards turn right again into the Museum.

    NOTE: There is plenty of car parking space but do not park directly in front of the Museum - that is reserved for people unloading kit and Disabled car drivers. Also - take care as there are three severe Sleeping Policeman as well.
