JK Antennas of Connecticut has generously donated a new two-element, 40-meter Yagi antenna to Maxim Memorial Station W1AW at ARRL Headquarters. JK Antennas’ Ken Garg, W3JK, and his assistant, Craig Finley, transported the new Yagi to W1AW on April 24 for assembly and installation.
“I am very grateful for Ken’s generosity,” said W1AW Station Manager Joe Carcia, NJ1Q. “His kindness toward W1AW, technical expertise, and pride in his product is most refreshing.” Carcia said the new antenna replaced a Yagi that had not been performing as needed and had failed a couple of times in the past.
“What we did on April 24 was remove the old two-element, 40-meter Yagi — fixed to the south-southwest and used for all of our 40-meter code practice and bulletin transmissions — and replaced it with the JK402T two-element 40-meter Yagi,” Carcia explained.
