TAARC June 2015 Club Night Report

Thurrock Acorns ARC LogoThe June 2015 meeting of the Thurrock Acorns Amateur Radio Club took place on Tuesday the 16th, and was on the subject of oscilloscopes and how they can help members of TAARC. Thanks to TAARC for sending over this report:

This month’s meeting of the Thurrock Acorns Amateur Radio Club held in Grays recently focused on oscilloscopes and how to use them. The main purpose of an oscilloscope is to present a pictorial representation of an electrical signal as it varies over time. TAARC member Steve G4HXY introduced the topic by explaining what an oscilloscope can do and then proceeded to show via diagrams how to connect the oscilloscope up to the piece of radio equipment under test.

After the explanation, he then switched on an oscilloscope that he had brought and started to put some of the theory into practice so club members could see the picture that appeared on the screen of the oscilloscope when it was being used. Following the presentation members were able to experiment with the equipment with Steve answering any questions that arose.
