Kicking Off Another Great Program

Ernie KG4YNI is seen here making the intro for our presenter Don Jeerings KI4EFL. His topic: Lightning.

Few put themselves into a presentation like Don. Seen here he is about to reveal something really shocking. We are warned to stand back, and prepare ourselves.

In addition to the many lightning demos, Don showed off some of the technology designed to protect our equipment from lightning. The device he is holding is designed to protect phone lines from a lightning strike. He also discussed two methods of measuring the quality of a station's ground, and populated his talk with images of local ham stations, commenting on each from the lightning point of view.
