Club Night: Mini SWR Meters

Thanks to Mathew and Trevor for a facinating evening with talks based around the VSWR meter including further developments of the active whip antenna which may be used in the very near future as a project for the Intermediate examination.

It is hoped to start running classes in the very near future for the Intermediate as about 7 members were keen to progress to this level. There may also be a Foundation course as a number of people have shown an interest. An excellent turnout of members last night. Thanks everyone.
