Licence Exams

  • Anyone?
  • Next exam likely October, Arihant and Christian, Andy Barrett-Sprot want to do intermediate.

Mast

  • Overview of things that have happened
  • Yagi for 70cm - single/crossed?
    • Single, I think, because we determined crossed was too big/expensive.
    • Tyler suggests asking Moonraker for a custom one?
    • Polarisation
      • Horizontal, as the vertical can cover vertical.
  • Powerbeam Range test with nanobeam
    • That will happen, in the maths tower, later this evening hopefully.
  • Other societies
    • Astrosoc hasn't got back to me yet.
    • It'd be nice to have a meeting with/directly contact other socs.
  • Other mast business
    • Henry needs to respond to HF beam people
  • Tyler has spoken to Mike Nash, he has passed on the information to the person who needs to approve it.

Residual wordpressy things
