Today we received this nice correspondence from John Fallows VE6EY. Please take a moment to review his message. It may prove to be very useful to you.
“Earlier this year, I published a series of articles on my web site called “Noise Cancellers – RFI Survival Guide”. The purpose of this information was to help hams and shortwave listeners lower their local HF noise floor and improve reception.
RFI from neighbors is a constant challenge. Properly set up, noise cancellers are amazingly effective in cleaning up or reducing RFI. Sucesss depends on understanding what kind of noise you can fight, how noise cancellers work, and most important, designing and installing noise probe antennas around your location. This five-article series does just that. It also includes a detailed video demonstrating effective noise cancellation.
Please take a moment to review these articles. If you find them to be useful, please consider passing these along to your members or contacts.
You can use these articles by linking to them on your web site, Twitter feed, Facebook page or by e-mail. The URL is:
Thanks for your consideration. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me.”
At our recent field day one of our contacts was to N8D, a special event station, operated by the Archbishop Elder Council 1195 of the Knights of Columbus. They were operating from Campus of St. Gertrude Catholic Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. As a result we received this very unique certificate.
Lance (our resident food provider), N2OZ needs our help. Club members are needed to man the booth. Please contact Lance and let him know you are willing to help out!
This year’s Gloucester Hamfest is also the official ARRL New Jersey State Convention.
OBARC and SJDXA have reserved one of the 10 free booths available. We need to have people help man it. Please consider attending this great event and also donating a little time to help out your club at our booth.
The address is 235 Bridgeton Pike (Rt. 77), Mullica Hill.
Urb, W1UL, is gearing up to offer another of his online guided study courses to prepare you for an Extra Class license.
Urb has been a ham for 67 years and has developed a method for passing the exams by studying and discussing what you need to know in order to get your license.
If you are interested in more information or to sign up for the class please email Urb at email@example.com.
