BVARC SEPTEMBER GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING

SEPTEMBER MEETING WILL NOT BE AT DEVINCI MAKER LABS!

At the Ice Cream Social I announced that the BVARC September meeting would be at the DaVinci Maker Labs in Alvin. We have had logistics problems. That field trip is now postponed to another time.

The September meeting will now be at the Mason’s Lodge in Sugar Land. That’s the usual place at the usual time. Rick Hiller, W5RH, will present an introduction to the EzNec antenna modeling software.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Pete Sauermilch, KD5QPX

September 13th Meeting Presentation

Welcome to EZNEC – Rick Hiller W5RH

Does antenna theory have you baffled? Are the pattern plots in the antenna handbooks confusing? What happens if you added one more director element to your existing Yagi-Uda?   What is the feed impedance of an OCF dipole?

EZNEC, a PC based software application, can fill in the blanks on antenna theory and answer these and other questions by showing you the how’s and why’s of your antennas. Welcome to EZNEC will take you from knowing little about antennas to knowing how to use EZNEC to educate yourself on antenna theory and to allow you to achieve NEC-2 based results on your antenna set-up that will help you understand and improve your antenna system.

 

A handout listing reference articles and complementary software references will be provided.
