    May Meeting
    Tue 2-May-2017, 7.30-10pm
    Oaklands Museum, Moulsham Street
    "Coax - A Flexible RF Component"
    John Regnault G4SWX

    For the May meeting, VHF expert John Regnault G4SWX returns to CARS to give a fascinating talk on what 'Tricks with Coax' you can achieve.

    John will explain how coaxial cable can be used not only for connecting-up RF equipment and antennas but also for many impedance transformation and tuned circuit applications.

    Most will have read about transmission-line stubs in the various handbooks and manuals and a few might have even tried a few applications. In his presentation, John will describe how to use coaxial stubs for antenna traps, very high performance transmitter harmonic filters, low-loss receiver ‘notch’ filters. And beyond that - look at how you can even assemble diplexers, not only at VHF, but also for the HF bands.

    The talk includes many practical examples which can be made by amateurs with simple equipment and will hopefully appeal to most radio amateurs.

    Directions / Parking

    You can drive all the way up Moulsham Street from Parkway but NOT the other way.

    Another way is to enter Moulsham Street after going round the Miami Roundabout (by Tesco), then along New London Road 200 yards, turn right into Moulsham Street and after 100 yards turn right again into the Museum.

    NOTE: There is plenty of car parking space but do not park directly in front of the Museum - that is reserved for people unloading kit and Disabled car drivers. Also - take care as there are three severe Sleeping Policeman as well.
