April 3, 2024 BARS Meeting – Douglas Bruce Millar, K6JEY, on Test Equipment for Hams Explained

We are pleased to announce that Douglas Bruce Millar, (I’m not kidding!) K6JEY, will be our Guest Speaker via Zoom and he will give a presentation entitled “Test Equipment for Hams, including Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) Explained”

Doug got his novice ticket in 1957. He has always liked VHF and up. He has EME stations on 2m, 70cm and 23cm. He also has microwave stations on 10, 24, 47 and 79GHz with a station for 140GHz half completed.

Doug enjoys HF DXing and especially boat anchors and HF AM. He usually checks in to the AMI West Coast net on Wednesdays at 8PM, on 3870KHz. The picture below is of Doug’s usual operating position. He normally uses the R4 C and the Ranger with the KPA500 amp for AM.

Please join us on April 3, 2024, live at the Church, or via Zoom for a presentation that I believe will be informative and relevant to our membership.

We will announce the link to join the Zoom meeting before the meeting, but it will be posted to the BARS email list and should not be shared outside our Club. Are you on the email list?
