How do we choose a new rig

 

       

 

Presented by

Rob Sherwood, NC0B

I appreciate the invitation to speak at your August Oro Valley club meeting. While the title of my talk is “How do we choose a new rig”, the subject of optimizing our station is more general than that. I was asked recently at dinner before the Boulder Colorado club meeting why I didn’t own the top radio listed on my website. A buyer shouldn’t look at only one number any more than we would buy a car and select the fastest one that could go over 150 MPH!

I’ll give you a hint as to what I emphasize more by looking at some pictures of my QTH and one of my operating positions.

My slide presentation leaves time for questions from those who will be attending the meeting.
