SLSRC is once again honored to have Ward Silver, NØAX, as the program presenter for our July meeting. His presentation will be based on his most recent ARRL book, “Grounding and Bonding for the Radio Amateur”, which is available on Amazon or the ARRL website.
The meeting is Friday, July 28, at 7 PM at the Goldfarb School of Nursing, located in the Clinical Learning Institute building at Missouri Baptist Hospital, rooms 419-420.
Ward is the Lead Editor of the ARRL Handbook and the ARRL Antenna Book. He is the author of all three ARRL License Manuals and the Q&A Study Guides along with writing the monthly QST column “Hands-On Radio.” The ham radio detective mystery, “Ray Tracy: Zone of Iniquity” is his contribution to the dramatic side of ham radio. He serves as a Contributing Editor to the ARRL and consults on a variety of projects and programs in the ARRL Contest Branch. You will also find his byline in the popular Wiley “for Dummies” series; Ham Radio (now in its 2nd edition), Two-Way Radios and Scanners, and Circuit building Do-It-Yourself.
An electrical engineer, he designed microprocessor-based products and medical devices for twenty years before beginning a second career as a teacher and writer. Ward was first licensed in 1972 as a Novice (WNØGQP) and enjoys DXing, contesting, and participating on his local ARES emergency communications team. He is a founder of the World Radiosport Team Championships and is President of the YASME Foundation.
Outside of ham radio, Ward plays the mandolin, dabbles in digital photography, and enjoys camping, canoeing, kayaking, and Ultimate Frisbee.
This is a “Don’t Miss” presentation, so hope to see everyone there!
