January 2020 Meeting

January 2020 Meeting

Mark your calendars for our next meeting this Thursday, January 9th at 7:30pm. Please note we will be meeting in rooms 9A/B for the next couple of meetings. They are the first rooms on the left as you turn into the hallway.

In addition to a full agenda of items, Al Peter will be giving a presentation on the Antenna Tuner in the new project book he and Dr. Jack Purdum co-authored.

The tuner has a circuit allowing for an instant readout of the SWR for the entire band. Of note is it gives a true linear measure of the SWR from 80 through 10 meters. This should be another interesting presentation from Al.

Al and Dr. Purdum will have an article in the February issue of Rad Com. Rad Com is published by the Radio Society of Great Britain. The article covers their Double-Double Mag Loop antenna they demonstrated to the club recently. Congratulations to both Al and Jack. I suspect we will be seeing it in other venues soon.

Remember club dues are now due. They may be paid either in person, online, or by check mailed to the club address.
