March Meeting - 1/4 Wave Stub Filters

WVHFG Categories

The feature series in the last three month’s of Q Bit has been about using 1/4 wave stubs for filters. To follow this up, the author is going to provide an overview of the theory and a short practical demonstration of stub filters.

Doug ZL2TAR has plenty of professional and practical experience with designing and implementing 1/4 wave filters to meet the requirements of closely located antennas and site that may suffer from interference.

Hello and Happy New Year!

Our only meeting this month is a BBQ with the Kapiti Branch on Saturday 25 January from midday.  We will be at QEII park picnic area 7 and entry is via Wellington Road, Paekakariki. (access from Paekakariki  and you will need to bring everything- even shade and a seat! There is plenty of space and last year was a lovely afternoon.  If you can bring a BBQ to cook on (gas only), please do so if you don't have one, I'm sure you can share space on one.
