Entry Level Test Equipment Class – March 8th Schertz Public Library

Ham_TechnicianThe class will be an entry level Test Equipment Class.  This class is for newcomers to amateur radio or old timers that just want to learn how to use test equipment, the tests and how they can apply to us as hams.  Our equipment list includes but is not limited to:

  • Digital VOM  Fluke
  • Analog VOM  Simpson 206
  • Oscilloscope 20 mHz Tektronix
  • 30 Amp Power Supply
  • Motorola Signal Generator
  • Elecraft RF Signal Source
  • MFJ-259 / 269

We will explore capacitors, resistors, diodes and ohms law!  There will be lots of “hands on” activity in this class!  Bring some paper, pen or pencils, and a calculator with you.    This information will help you understand the Ham Radio hobby, and might even help you better understand the questions on the Extra Class test as well.

The Entry level Test Equipment class will be held at the Schertz Public Library on March 8, 2014, starting at 12:00 PM.   The class size is limited (most due to the size of the classroom at the library)  so don’t hesitate to sign up!  See map to library here

We will be providing Coffee and Coca-Cola and Dr. Pepper refreshments for the class (If the library permits such items inside).

Depending on how the class progresses, how the participation and interest goes, We may hold a second continuing more advanced class.
