Terry, VK6ZLT was to give a talk on his experiments on using a Noise Generator with a SDR to test harmonic filters, but some experiments don't quite pan out, instead he did a short show and tell on his Quadrifilar Helix Antenna used as a base antenna to receive 2m Satellite reception. The designs for the antenna are mentioned in a past Official Bulliton MHz to GHz from August 2007 see August 2007.
Surface Mount Soldering by Terry, VK6ZLT
Terry took us through details on SMD soldering, including SM components, tools needed, flux and solder.
At the next Activity Day, April 2, there'll be a chance to try and practice techniques in soldering.
Links from the handouts. There's plenty of videos on the web to get a good grounding on SMD soldering. Check out some below.
