How a noise canceller can help your HF station combat noise.
Many of us live in suburban neighborhoods closely surrounded by a variety of RF noise makers that can ruin our reception of radio signals. The sources of noise is too many to list. Whatever the source of the noise the hapless ham must try to combat the influx of the disruption. Our video topic will be on a device that in many cases will eliminate the offending racket.
We also will do a brief review of the Hamfesters web site and show you around. There are some interesting "nooks and crannies" to be found. This should be fun!
Your presenters will be Granville, W9PNG and Brian, W9HLQ
