aim of the Conference is to share with our fellow VHFer's and above technical
achievements in the field of communication and experimentation. You are all
invited to participate by presenting a technical paper or submitting one for
publication in the Conference Proceedings CD. Just your attendance is also
welcome and we have a full program scheduled once again this year.
If you are interested in presenting a paper at the conference or submitting
one for the Proceedings please contact: Paul Wade, W1GHZ at
For the technical presentations, PowerPoint presentations are preferred, but not required. The conference will provide an LCD projector, screen and wireless microphone for use by its participants. If your presentation requires a different format such as a slide projector, please contact me prior to the conference and I will arrange for it. A Conference Proceedings will be published on CD. You do not need to be a speaker to have your material included in the proceedings, just interested in sharing with your fellow radio enthusiasts, so please send it along before APRIL 1, 2014. In addition to our technical presentations we'll have a Manufacturers Demo open Saturday afternoon. We'll also have Greg Bonaguide, WA1VUG of Rohde & Schwarz America to manage the preamp noise figure and gain measurement Lab Session (10MHz-50GHz). This year we'll be able to measure power from DC to 110 GHz, Spectrum Analyzer for DC to 50 GHz, Phase noise to 50 GHz, and Noise Figure to 18 GHz. 2 Vector Network Analyzers: 10 MHz to 70 GHz, and 100 kHz to 8.5 GHz. We encourage you to bring equipment you'd like to have tested. Mark Casey, K1MAP will head up the Sunday morning flea market. Michele Clement W1MKY and Tom Filecco W1WSO will be handling the Door Prize Donations. This years' VHF-SHF Trivia Quiz will be hosted by Dave Olean, K1WHS. The Proceedings CD with the event schedule and many interesting articles is included with your conference registration fee and will be presented to you when you arrive. Hope to see you soon!
