Antenna Modeling with (and without) NEC

This Thursday, Ron Mount will be speaking to us about Antenna Modeling with and without using NEC.

Ron has had an interest in radio and electronics for around 50 years, but only gained his licence and the call G7DOE in 1990. Ron’s interests so far have been exclusively at VHF and above, operating mainly on 2m, 70cm and 23cm. He is also beginning to edge into operating on 13cm. He says he seems to spend much of his time thinking and arguing about antennas, very often for bands he is not interested in!

Professionally, Ron joined Plessey’s Applied Research Laboratory at Romsey after leaving university, working on X band developments before moving solidly into electronics CAD. After that, it was computers all the way until he retired 5 years ago.

Ron is an active member of the Harwell Amateur Radio Society and is involved in their training programme as one of their instructors, often producing papers and question sheets to support their courses. Jonathan, M0ZGB, can certainly vouch for Ron’s knowledge on the subjects he speaks about after completing his Intermediate & Advanced licences with Ron & the team at HARS.

So, Please join us on Thursday 26th September from 7pm for what is sure to be a very informative (and entertaining!) talk.
