Tom O'Brien, AB5XZ, will talk Thursday, September 13th 2007 about transmission lines for amateur radio use: a little history, how they work, different types, and some trade-offs, including a cost/benefit comparison between low-end and high-end coax types. Yes, Nikola Tesla invented coaxial cable. But so did Oliver Heaviside - and Lloyd Espenschied - and Ernst Werner von Siemens.
