January 2014 Kids Day

The 2014 Kids Day was held on January 5, 2014, at the Berkeley Heights Recreation Center. Turnout was lighter than normal due to the freezing rain which coated the antenna and coax feedline with a thin layer of ice (see last photo below). As usual, we had a HF station utilizing a 40/20 skeleton dipole and a VHF station utilizing a ground plane that made contacts with local repeaters. Below are some photos.
