...And How It Will Affect Your Radio Signal
Solar Expert Ron Ochu, KO0Z, to Share
Latest Scientific Research September 1
        Ochu, primarily an HFDXer, was first  licensed in 1975. Now an extra-class licensee, the Girard, Illinois resident also dabbles with six meters to three centermeters. Ochu writes a monthly beginner's column, The Learning Curve, for CQ Magazine.
       The meeting will be held in the new offices of the Sangamon Valley Radio Club on the third floor of the Central Illinois American Red Cross headquarters building, 1045 Outer Park Drive, Springfield, starting at 7 p.m. Members and those interested in learning more about amateur radio are welcome to attend.
If your radio signal has ever been hampered or helped by solar activity, you'll not want to miss the Sangamon Valley Radio Club's September 1 meeting.
     And if you're not yet familiar with how something 93 million miles away can impact your amateur radio operation, you'll find out that as well when Ron Ochu provides a powerpoint-assisted presentation on  "What's Up With The Sun and VHF Propagation," particularly as it applies to solar cycles and VHF propagation such as sporadic E.
