Roger Dixon G4BVY : "Matching" Radio amateurs do it with real AND imaginary parts!
G4BVY is an active HF/VHF Dxer /Contester. He has retired from the MoD as an “electronics bod” and is a very active member of the RSGB Contest Committee.
Roger’s talk will consist of a bit of theory and lots of practical demonstrations. He will consider the characteristics of resistors, inductors and capacitors. SWR and why (or if) we need to match antennas will be examined. He will describe how to match an antenna to your transceiver.
All of this will be supported by live measurements on a network analyser.Roger
