With both Rob and Brian handling Tech night, it was full on with the oscilloscopes, including the vintage unit, with the soft yellow glowing eyes. Well done to both for a very entertaining evening.
Don’t forget we are looking for Committee members including President and Secretary, so if you would like to give either position a go, come forward and put your hand up.
Next Tech night, the 25th August will be oscilloscopes.
If you have one, bring it along, and show us your skills. You might show a circuit working with one.

Paul gave an in depth talk on antenna design, using a program called 4nec2
This program, allows you to type in all the measurements required, and them displays, how your antenna will work. Talk was enjoyed by all members, and note software is freeware, so members are encouraged to try this one out.
Well, another very informative and interesting presentation on digital radio and modes by our resident techo Brian VK5VI. A great coverage of digital from the early days through packet radio, QAM, voice encoding etc. into the modern digital world today. Thanks Brian for a great presentation and the preparation done to put a very technical topic into something all those present could understand. 73s Nig.

This is a great video, a lot of production has gone into the making of this, I would be happy to donate time and equipment to produce something like this.
