    Requested Items or Assistance

    Item # NERDS Member Looking for Assistance
    23 Looking for a Book: Anyone have "QRP Basics" by George Dobbs, G3RJV? Prefer the 2012 (2nd) edition but happy to look at earlier one. Thanks.

    Skills or Assistance Offered

    Item # Skill or Help Offered
    11 RF testing of all types to include antennas, filters, dummy loads, etc. I have a pretty good assortment of test equipment suitable for checking ham gear. Check frequency accuracy, sensitivity, power output etc. I can even measure noise figure of VHF and microwave preamps. Have a vector network analyzer good to 6 GHz. Scalar analyzer to 18 GHz. They do not get much use. Contact K1WHS (in between fishing!)
    30 Happy to help out with antenna work or station set up. W3NA
