We will be limited to 3 transmitters as we have 3 antennas. Since we're using a permanent location with mains power we must use category D. We have 3 antennas -- a 9-element log periodic on a rotor, a Hi-Gain 6/40 vertical, and a large loop antenna. The club has one station and the other 2 stations will be provided by club members, details to be agreed at the June club meeting. Operation will be at 100W on all stations in order to gain the 2x power multiplier.
