General Meeting – April 2024 – Receiver Performance – Signals and Noise

There’s a BIG EVENT coming on Monday!  Please join RWK on Monday April 8th for our General Meeting. (oh yeah, and there might be an Eclipse too)

In-person VE Testing begins at 5:30 and the RWK Social Hour begins at 6pm.  Please enjoy coffee and cookies and chat with other members!  If you have radio questions, please be sure and stop by our Beau’s Korner Radio Operating position – we’ll try to show you some new things and help you get answers.  At 7pm we will begin our program. 

Our April RWK Meeting will be on “Receiver Performance – Signals and Noise” with our own Ken Noblett N5UA. Multi-mode receivers will be discussed. What makes a poor, good,  better,  best receiver in the real world presence of weak signals, fading, noise and interference. Ken will share his experiences developing receivers to perform in tough environments, and what you can do to optimize your setup.

As usual, the meeting will be In-Person as well as simulcast on Zoom for those that do not want to attend in-person.  We will also have a recording available on the K5RWK.org website after the meeting is over.

Please wear your RWK Nametag!  We have lots of members and everyone needs a little help in matching callsigns to smiling faces.  If you can’t find (or don’t have) your RWK nametag, we will have blank paper nametags and you can order a replacement for a nominal charge.  I’d like everyone to introduce themselves to at least two members that they haven’t previously met face-to-face!

Meeting Location: St. Barnabas Church, 1220 West Belt Line Road, Richardson TX 75080.  Park in the rear parking lot and enter from the rear.  Click this for the map.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday!
