Photo of Calibration21st September: A classic TARGet nite with everything that is good about club networking. 25 members attended and we dealt with practical radio issues such as: How to check the calibration on an Antenna Analyser, 1-2-1 help with getting to grips with a new DMR, White board explanation of amplifier circuits, and demo on a ATU using the club’s permanently installed Long Wire. Advance notice of questions was a real benefit.
