Wayne Overbeck, N6NB, explains trans-pacific ducting

Our meeting this month was a busy one. First, it was our annual election night to select board members for the coming term. The results of the election are here. It was also our annual “Home Brew Night” and people brought all kinds of interesting things they created themselves to show and share with others.

We were also treated to a presentation from Wayne Overbeck, N6NB, the inventor of the world-famous ‘Quagi’ antenna and now the holder of the all time DX Microwave record. He has had successful contacts from Palos Verde California to the volcano tops of Hawaii on various UHF and microwave bands. His amazing skill and resourcefulness has made him a legend in the UHF+ DX realm. On top of that, Wayne is an excellent speaker and his humor and comfortable speaking style is particularly engaging. We all hope we will have the opportunity to hear him speak again and hear more stories of his remarkable DX quests.

If you would like to listen to the audio recording of the meeting, including Wayne’s presentation, head over to the Audio Archives area, or listen to the embedded audio below.
