Antenna Launching Contest

norm2-200x300Test your skills using a slingshot, air powered launcher, potato gun, bow and arrow, throw rope or whatever it takes to get the job done.

Returning for 2017 is the Drone Category and:

HRO Gift Certificates will be awarded to both category winners!

Who can be the most accurate and quickest at launching a pull rope over a support (our target) in preparation for installing a wire antenna?

We hear tall tales about how slick you are at this task. Most hams at sometime need to launch a support for a wire antenna. Here’s your chance to show off or get put down!

We’ll start at 10:00 out in the lot just behind the main ticket gate. You’ll get 3 chances to get a line through the target and a pull line set up.

We’ll have a small air compressor so if you need air, you don’t need to lug your compressor or tank. We’ll have a shelter setup and should be easy to find.

The target is improved over last year, and should create additional challenges for those brave enough to try.
