Fundamentals of Troubleshooting
Finding and fixing a problem with a radio, station setup or network connectivity can seem like an impossible task. Using a logical process of observation, applying technical documentation, training and appropriate test equipment is the key to success. The Tech Night presentation goal was to provide a look at well established troubleshooting methods and guidance on some of the basic test equipment needed by a Ham Radio Operator.
The presentation included a hands on demonstration using a Heathkit IG-102 Signal Generator and a Rigol DS1102E Oscilloscope. A copy of the entire presentation may be viewed by clicking the image below.
