Presentation – Glenn Johnson, W0GJ, K1N Navassa 2015
Glenn gave a very interesting talk about the history of Navassa, the many difficulties of preparing for the DXpedition, the operating hardships and the fun they had during this spectacular DXpedition. Those that missed this fine program can read Glenn’s written version at the Navassa Website http://navassadx.com/, select the NEWS tab, then click the reference to Glenn’s paper.

After an 8 minute break at 7:30pm, Glenn began his presentation titled “Is 3dB Worth a Divorce?”
Image 3The purpose of this very humorous presentation was to put 3dB into perspective. Whether you are talking about transmitter power or antenna gain, increasing either comes at a progressively higher cost per dB increase.
He showed several photos of his station, family, and other hobbies.

Some generalizations:

Jeff presented a certificate of appreciation to Glenn.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:15pm.
The September club meeting will be September 28, 2015 at 6:30 pm CDT.
Charles Hett, K0THN, KCDX Club Secretary
