2020-12-15 Weekly SCHH Ham Club This and That
Items of Interest:
“A Ham’s Guide to RFI, Ferrites, Baluns, and Audio Interfacing” by Jim, K9YC. On page 23, he discusses the use of common mode chokes to reduce or eliminate common mode noise from portable generators, like the kind that DXpeditions or Field Day-style contest operations use. If you’re thinking of going portable to get away from “city” RFI, be sure to verify you aren’t also bringing noise sources with you.
The next meeting will be January 4th at 7PM via Google Meets. We will have a special guest for this session, so they will likely kick off the meeting (as a courtesy for their time).
It will be Riley Hollingsworth who used to be the FCC liaison to Ham radio but is now part of the ARRL Volunteer Monitor program
We have another special guest scheduled for February. More details to follow… The February meeting will be on zoom on February 1st at 7PM
I will attempt to be there at about 6:45PM to work through any issues. The guest speaker will be first on the agenda.
