January Club Meeting

Are you new to ham radio and experiencing interference from the neighbor’s television? Have you ever thought about how the cable TV system works? How do they get all those channels on a single center conductor and are able to have two-way communications via the internet, video, and audio?

Ed Holloway, KØRPT, will give a presentation on CCTV/CATV design, from the
head end to the subscriber’s set-top box. He’ll show you some things you may want to know about fixing your internal CCTV/CATV system to eliminate interference you may be having. We’ll see you at the club meeting.
