Dave will be presenting “Antenna Modeling”; how to use your computer to model your antenna or better yet your antenna idea. As someone once said, “All models are wrong but some are useful.” Modeling can give insight into how the antenna is likely to behave or how changes to an existing antenna modify its behavior. You can model how various alternative implementation of a proposed antenna behave. Finally, it’s a lot easier to model an antenna on the computer and get a reasonable idea of how it will perform than it is to go outside (or in your attic) and wrestle with wires and trees and HOA’s. Dave is Technical Coordinator for ARRL West Central FL Section and also serves on the Board of Directors for TARC.
For those wanting to buy and sell during TARCFest next week, you should change your profile photo to an image of whatever you are selling. Buying and sellers can then use the chat feature to contact each other to wheel-and-deal.
You will need a FREE Zoom account to do this (https://zoom.us).
Directions for changing your profile photo are here:
The TARCFest Virtual Edition is FREE for attendees, buyers and sellers. Hope to see you next Saturday!

Avoid the rain, avoid the heat. TARCFest Zoomfest is coming to a computer screen near you.
With Florida being a COVID-19 Hot Spot we are unable to aggregate in large crowds safely, masks or no masks. We had to cancel April TARCFest so we are moving forward with a Zoomfest that will be held on August 22, 2020, 8:00am until noon, Eastern Time.
You will be able to post your items for sale and wander virtually from seller to seller on the Zoom app. Use the Chat feature on Zoom to wheel and deal with sellers. We will be seeking buyers and sellers from around the country plus we will have some features like new equipment information and guest speakers during the 4 hour event.
More information on scheduled events will be made available as we get closer to the August 22nd date both here and on the TARC website at www.hamclub.org.
So get out your cameras to take pictures of things you have to put on your “Virtual Table”. You never know what you will find or what you can sell. We will be advertising TARCFest Zoomfest nationwide, and we will also be simulcasting on our Facebook page.
