The Texas VHF-FM Society - Technical Information
Kent Britain - WA5VJB
Chairman - Technical Committee
Texas VHF-FM Society
In decades past the Texas VHF-FM Society has been a pace setter and technical leader in amateur radio FM communications. The Society had a platinum name plate and produced cutting-edge technical articles for its members.
Our collective effort is to restore that platinum image of the Society and to make it once again the one-stop location for technical information for all Texas hams.
Our technical goal for the Society is to have the best informed and best trained hams operating the best maintained and functioning equipment in the United States. This is a lofty goal for sure. But as you can see; it's a goal that is most certainly obtainable with the great people that the Society is currently putting into place.
Our new Technical Committe Chairman is Kent Britain, WA5VJB. Kent is prolific and produces some of the most highly read articles on antenna design in Amateur Radio. Kent is a breath of fresh air for the Society.
Also on our technical committee is Bob DeVance, K5CRX. Bob is bringing a new look with new ideas on basic skills and development. Amateur Radio needs to make sure that all our newly licensed operators are served with the best technical background possible. Bob is just the man to get that job done.
Mike Chittenden, AE5IV will be one of our new technical "Field Operatives". Mike will literally be in the field with test equipment helping Texas hams verify and improve the performance of their mobile station installations. Mike with his years of technical background is also available to help you on technical issues with your repeater.
Please check back often for articles from Kent Britain, Bob DeVance, and other Society members.
