6-Meter loop antenna presentation

As promised, here is the presentation I presented at the Jan 16 club meeting.  I put up an adobe PDF file as well as the Powerpoint file.  I also started a forum thread if people want to share ideas.   If you want to build one, the dimensions in the presentation under "wires" are a good place to start for a free space ant.  Thanks for attending even though the wx was not so good.

Presentation: Solar and Modern Power Systems for Ham Radio

Guest speaker - Bob Bruninga, WB4APR

The technology of power systems has changed drastically in the last decade, yet most ham's concepts of shack power, field power, emergency power and renewable power are woefully out of date. Did you know you can use a modern loaptop power supply on anything from 100 to 240 VAC OR 150 to 330 VDC? It can provide up to 6 amps for portable operation and take only 10% the size and weight of older power supplies. Also Home Solar has come of age. Payback is now in under 5 years and then you get free power for LIFE!
