RM Ham University – Test and Measurement

The Rocky Mountain Ham Radio group offers an educational series they call RMHAM University. I am honored to be able to present on the topic of Practical Ham Radio Measurements on Saturday morning Dec 15th.

As many of you know, this topic is an intersection of my hobby of amateur radio and 40 years working in the electronic test and measurement industry. I’ve written two books on the electronic measurement and enjoy talking about it.

Here’s the agenda for the class.

1.       Introduction Measurement Concepts, trends in test and measurement 8:00 to 8:30
2.       Digital Multimeters Voltage, current and resistance measurements 8:30 to 9:20
Break
3.       SWR Measurement SWR, reflection coefficient, SWR measurements, antenna analyzers, vector network analyzers 9:30 to 10:20
Break
4.       Oscilloscope measurements Time domain, bandwidth, scope probes 10:30 to 11:00
5.       RF Measurements Frequency domain, spectrum analyzers, SDR receiver, transceiver tests, power measurement 11:00 to 11:30
Discussion and wrap up 11:30 to noon

    When I was in the Navy, I attended Percision measuring equipment school (PME), NEC-1598, in 1968. Served aboa0rd aboard USS Piedmont AD-17 in the California lab for 3 years. It is a great field. The school was at Lowery AFB in Denver CO. 73s, Tom
