Technical Mentoring and Elmering Net – November 2, 2017

The audio archive of this net can best be followed by downloading the .mp3 file for the appropriate date here and listening with the media player of your choice. You can move the progress slider forward or backward to the subject of interest to you.

We had another good net tonight with 9 check-ins plus net control, Brian, K6BPM and some chat room visitors! Tonight’s subjects included:

  • A ham in Hope Ranch has trouble hitting the Mesa repeater with his HT but he can hit Santa Ynez okay, but it’s noisy. Is the noise normal or is there a problem?
  • What are electric and magnetic (electromagnetic) waves?
  • Fractional Wave Loop antennas.
  • How do you test a coax cable for continuity/signal quality?
  • What HF rig/s and amplifiers do you have?
  • What’s the furthest contact you’ve made and on which band and mode?

Tune in to the SBARC TM&E Net every Thursday at 8:00 PM local (2000 Hrs) and see what interesting questions will arise or ask some of your own! All club members and visitors are encouraged to check in to the net each week and join in with questions and /or answers to and contribute the knowledge of new and seasoned amateur radio operators alike.
