18 June – Monster Shed Workshop – Construction of Flowerpot Antennas

We held a MONSTER shed workshop to construct flowerpot antennas on Sunday 18 June at The Collective Community Hub, 1/33 Johnsonville Rd, . Around 30 people turned out and 22 antennas were built. The event commence dat 1.30pm with an introduction to the build by Bruce ZL2ABC. Teams of 4 to 5 people worked through a number of “stations” in building their antennas. We needed to be out of the building by 4pm, which was rather tight!

A special thanks to Bruce’s XYL who provided scones and personal service at the tea/coffee zone.

This was a special shed workshop for any amateur (or prospective amateur operator) interested in building their own Flowerpot Antenna (see   Members of other Wellington region clubs were welcome to participate in this activity!
