Calculating Resistors & Capacitors in Series and Parallel

"Resistors & Capacitors in Series & Parallel"

For the new students studying for the Technician Class amateur radio license, we offer this small aid.  This video explains in very elementary terms how to calculate the total resistance or capacitance in DC circuits when the components are configured in series or parallel.

This video is offered by the Sangamon Valley Radio Club.

Field Day in the Time of Covid-19

This year, Field Day is going to be quite different for the members of the SVRC.  Since the Covid virus has restricted our movements and social distancing is the new normal, the SVRC is not going to assemble a team to conduct Field Day as it has in the past.  Instead, we are recommending that our members run their own Field Day exercise on their own.  As long as you follow the health guidelines, we hope you can work from home or from some personal outdoor area and make as many contacts as you can.
