Date Presenter Subject Description
Saturday 11/18/2017 Ron N0IVN and Tom W0IVJ Getting a Handle on RF Noise and Interference Radio frequency interference (RFI) has affected amateur radio for as long as the hobby has existed. From a ham radio perspective, RFI can involve interference to amateur radio communications, or interference from amateur radio communications. Join ARRL EMC Committee member Ron Hranac, N0IVN, and Tom Thompson, W0IVJ, for an introduction to radio frequency interference, what it is and what causes it, how to prevent RFI from your station, and how to find and fix RFI to your station.
Saturday 12/16/2017 Chris AE5IT Every Antenna is a Multiband Antenna When I was your age we had high SWR both ways in the snow, and we LIKED it! High SWR doesn't have to mean signal loss, and you can do more with a simple wire dipole than you think. Explore feedlines, reflections, impedance matching, and learn the simple truth about feedline loss.
