I was unable to get the supply of #14 wire needed to continue with the Antenna Tuner Coils today. Due to my morning plans, I will be unable to get the wood necessary to proceed with an alternate section of the construction of these devices today. Therefore, today's meeting of the Antenna Tuner Group for Field Day will be postponed till Next Sunday, February 4, 2018. I hope some of you will take advantage of the extra weekend time to participate in Winter Field Day.
