Our Surprise Speaker, And It Was A Pleasant One At That

Pinch hitting for Chet who could not make the meeting due to nasty fall, Mike did an excellent job covering the use baluns, toroid composition,both ferrite and powder iron types, and long wire antennas. This kind of presentation makes you want to go out in the back yard and experiment and that is just what he did to prepare. Discovery, and even rediscovery is what makes this hobby so interesting.

Note: I just chatted with Chet who is recovering from a fractured hip. The good news is that the doctors believe it is a hairline fracture and he should recover in a month or so, without the need for surgery.
