Conratulations to our club member Ricardo H Kallen KK6CGO on his 2nd place at CODE's Night Race serial 2015, he is running class 1850 and his over all time was 4:16:47 with an average speed of 30.14 mi/hr. Code off road racing series has local, and international competitors which compete and have fun. The night off road racing is a one of a kind experience both for racers and specators. This also brings entries from racers who do not have unlimited budgets, It is a great race for would be sponsors to find talented racers to sponsor. The race is held between Tecate and Mexicali in the Laguna Salada. This desert flat is charactorized mostly by sand.
A few years ago I made a 144MHz moon bounce contact with
KB8RQ using my trusty "Arrow" dual band yagi (
http://www.arrowantennas.com/arrowii/146-437.html ). and a brick amp.
Details from this contact are below. Yesterday I made a moon
bounce contact with NC1I on 432MHz with a brick amp, using the same
antenna. The yagi's boom is only 37.5in / 95cm long and
was mounted to a camera tripod. 3 elements on 144MHz, 7 elements on
432MHz. The amplifier was a TE Systems commercial FM repeater unit
heavily reworked into something comparable to a TE Systems 4452G.
