Regenerative Loop Antennas
February 12 @ 7:15 pm - 9:15 pmFree
Loop antennas are a hot topic today and improved directional loop antennas are key for having great BCB Dxing fun. Joe discusses the earliest 1924 patent which adds regeneration to a loop antenna to obtain improved selectivity and other performance enhancements. The regenerative loop antenna inventor, Vladimir Kosmich Zworykin went on to work for RCA and is considered to be a pioneer of television technology (Sarnoff called him THE inventor of television)! Joe reversed engineers a commercial regen loop – the Kiwa Medium Wave air core loop antenna – with the idea of designing and making one.
Currently, Prof Joe Jesson is an adjunct ECE Professor at The College of New Jersey and CEO of a Consulting Company, RFSigint Group.
