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
