Maurice Martin (KM5RF) will be our special speaker for January 17 at 7pm. He will be giving us a presentation on Ufer tower grounding, lightning suppression, proper ground rod installation, and station grounding.
He has quite a few hands on items that he will pass around and explain the purpose of each in multiple installations, as well as actual lighting damaged items that have been removed from his station.
His tower has taken 2 direct lighting strikes in the past with no damage with all 7 radios being connected. This will be a most interesting presentation, so come with questions about all things towers and grounding.
