W6TRW Club Meeting February 14, 2023

Speaker Topic for this Month:

“HF Update – Making The Most of Your Operating Time”

Bill Shanney, W6QR

In this presentation, Bill reviews transceiver performance with an emphasis on making sure you get what you want and also a radio that has a clean transmitter. Following is an antenna overview leading into some examples of how to use available critical frequency data to compute optimum operating times. Bill will end with a brief summary of propagation during today’s good conditions.

“My first call was WV2RDG in NJ. I became WA2RDG when I got my general in 1961. I operate 99.5% CW on 160-6M. After a long period of inactivity (career and family) I upgraded to extra class in 1988 and became very active. That is also the year that I joined the TRW ARC. I have a BSEE from NJ Institute of Technology and worked for 45 years in RF and microwave design. I retired from NG/TRW in 2007 after 31 years with the company.”

When: Tuesday, February 14th at 6:30 PM
