As part of its 2020 Kawfee Tawk Speaker Series, our November program will feature one of the best technical experts in the region and a ham who has certainly developed a following.
Alan Wolke W2AEW will be our November presenter. This video program will be held on Friday, November 13th beginning at 7:30 PM EST (0030 UTC).
Alan’s topic will be "An Intro to Nano VNA”. For those of you who haven’t seen/tried one of these Vector Network Analyzers (VNA) called NanoVNA they are an excellent and inexpensive (~$50-100) tool that can do functions (and more) such as measure coax length, locate fault in cable like a TDR, measure filters (bandpass, high/low pass, etc.) and sweep antennas and other RF networks
The program will last about an hour and will include an opportunity for questions and comments.

Alan was originally licensed as a novice in the late seventies (KA2IZZ), but then dropped out of the hobby after entering college and then the workforce. He re-entered the hobby as a Tech (and then a Tech Plus) in 1997 (KC2BOG). His vanity call (W2AEW) was issued October 1998.
He is an electrical engineer, working as a Field RF Application Engineer for Tektronix, taking care of customers in the Northeastern part of the US. Previous "lives" included design and applications work that focused primarily on analog and mixed signal, high-speed, RF, hard-disk, fiber optic, telecom and datacom circuits and their applications.
You can find Alan's ham radio, oscilloscope, electronics repair and tutorials, test & measurement, etc. related videos on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/w2aew.
He is a Life Member of the ARRL, a Volunteer Examiner, and the Technical Coordinator for the Northern New Jersey section of the Hudson Division of the ARRL. He is also a returning speaker, having spoken to FLARC in April 2018 on oscilloscopes.
