This page is intended to be a pool from which future ARCatUCF activities can be selected. Some of these are also appropriate for individuals as well. If any of these projects interest you, please bring it up at the next club meeting!!! If you think of any additional radio projects, feel free to add them to this list!

Bold items have already been completed by the club, but could be repeated, as not all club members were involved.

[edit] Internet remote base projects

These would allow the club to install an HF radio on a remote tower, and allow control from the shack (or anywhere else) without unreasonable expense.

Components of a remote base would be:

A few of the control ideas are similar to a repeater controller.

[edit] Repeater projects

The club repeater could use some enhancement.

Arrow J-poles
Arrow dual band J-pole (10 gets a price break)
Arrow Foxhunt antenna
foxhunt VHF loop. Very pretty, but price is a bit high especially for a receive only antenna. (Perhaps we should try to build some?)
