Next NCCC Meeting

Guests are always welcome at the NCCC! Please join us.

Using Ferrites to Suppress RFI To and From Ham Gear
Jim Brown, K9YC

This presentation will focus on the fundamental mechanisms that couple RF into consumer equipment and from consumer equipment into ham stations.  Ferrite chokes, properly used, can greatly reduce that current, thus suppressing the interference.

Dinner:  Pizza & Soft Drinks, $3/slice.  RSVP with K6EU by Sunday, 11 June.  PayPal is great, but you may prefer to pay at the door given the per-slice arrangement.
Additional Options

(Note that PayPal payments to the NCCC cannot be credit card funded.  Please move funds into your PayPal account or use the "eCheck" option or set the funding source to be a bank account, rather than credit card.)
