This is a recent VNA presentation from another ARES group. I am going to ask another member (AE0FD) to do the antenna analyzer presentation, but haven't crossed paths yet.

See if this is of any use to you:

Additional MACC Makerspace details

Fred Dittrich
 

Hi

I just e-mailed MACC about their Makerspace membership and received the following:

-----------------------------------------

Hello Fred,

I am the Makerspace coordinator here at the MaccLab in Columbia. Chris Parks gave me your information so I thought I would give you a brief overview about what we are doing here at MACC.

Our makerspace will be a community makerspace with areas such as woodworking, metal working, CNC lab, 3D printing, Frame shop, textiles, vinyl cutters, laser cutters, and small electronics benches. Membership costs and details are still under construction but will be offered on a monthly or yearly basis. Because of several setbacks over the last year, our opening date is still to be determined, but we are making a goal for opening sometime this summer. Please feel free to reach out with questions anytime. We hope to see you in the MaccLab soon!

Removing ice from dish

Mike Morgan
 

I use the orange colored window shield wash. It is good for 0 degrees. Apply with small sprayer. If it works on your vehicle , it does work on a dish. 
You should not need ladder.
