Elmering in the park
August 6th, 2022, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM Larkin Park Harrison and Mountain Ave Claremont CA.
As GOTAhams continues their mentoring (elmering) mission, we will be extending our look into Coax, Coax/feedline terminating (installing ends) simple methods of testing feedlines etc.
Attendees will be introduced to the crimping tools, their use, best practice soldering techniques and completing the assemblies with heat shrink tubing.
Attendees (members and guests) will gain hands on experience comparing several popular types of coaxial cable (see and touch examples). Members who make a modest materials donation will be coached as they make a 3-foot jumper cable with crimp/solder PL-259 connectors using either RG8X or LMR400 class coax.
Many of you are familiar with these methods and others will be introduced possibly for the first time. As always, we’ll be socializing, snacking and having a great time, we are looking forward to seeing lots of smiling faces and discussing Amateur Radio!
