General Meeting – May 2021 – HF Power Losses

General Meeting – May 2021 – HF Power Losses

Join us for the May 10th general meeting of the Richardson Wireless Klub. Don’t miss your opportunity to join this virtual RWK meeting from the comfort of your living room, office or ham shack.

This month’s presentation will be delivered by Jim Eatman, KG5WAW. Jim has delivered several great talks at recent meetings – most recently a great presentation on HF dipoles (June 2019). This month he will be discussing power losses in HF radio links. This presentation is meant for hams of all skill levels, and will delve into sources of power loss (coax, tuners, baluns, antennas, etc.), along with some steps you can take to help reduce them.

As with recent meetings, we are meeting via Zoom and registration is required (name, email, callsign).  Please use this registration link: https://bit.ly/33eX0Xr

We look forward to having you there!  And since RWK monthly general meetings are open to all, please feel free to invite anyone you think might be interested.

Beau’s Korner Mentoring/Roundtable – 6pm
 
Please join us for the (dare I say popular?) Beau’s Korner Mentoring/Roundtable session at 6pm before the meeting.  We’ve been averaging 20 or so on video (and a few more that are just audio only).  It’s the closest thing to an informal gathering before the meeting at the church that we have, so join us on video (most laptops and phones have a built-in webcam) if you dare or just watch us have fun before the meeting.  Bring your questions and show pics of your shack and/or antennas.
