Slides from the Ed Fong presentation

Ed Fong made a presentation to RARC at the April meeting, and the feedback has been all positive. Follow the link below. The last slide has a discounted price list. Mention RARC when ordering. Students of DR. Fong’s RF classes fabricate the antennas as lab projects, and the proceeds go to supporting the students.
