On behalf of the WPBARG Board of Directors, we would like to take a moment to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.
Last month we discussed and celebrated our success for the year. As we embark on this new year, we will continue building on our past achievements with a forward look on new opportunities and ways to have fun. I more than look forward to the success of this coming year, I am excited for it!
We kick off our first meeting of the year on the 24th, where we are excited to announce our special guest speaker, Dr. Ed Fong. I have spent a fair amount of time communicating with Dr. Fong, who will insist you call him, Ed. Back in October, I had the privilege of a rather lengthy phone conversation with him. He is brilliant and a very good communicator.
Dr. Fong will join us with a remote presentation on antenna principles, including the J-pole antenna. We will have an interactive Q&A after the presentation with Dr Fong.
Dr. Fong holds a BSEE and MSEE from UC at Berkeley, and a Ph.D. from the Univ. of San Francisco. At the University of California, he teaches graduate classes in High Speed Interface Design and RF Design. He holds 12 patents and has several dozen published papers. His call is WB6IQN, and was first licensed in 1968.
After that, we will have a short business meeting where we will install our new officers and thank our previous.
Then, the following Saturday, the 24th, we have our monthly Saturday in The Park event, which coincides with Winter Field Day. We are currently working on a Mini Field Day for Saturday, so stay tuned for more information on that!
We welcome everyone to our meetings and activities, members and non-members, whether licensed or not!
