Time and Frequency Standards – a talk by G4DZU

This evenings meeting has been a talk by Doug, G4DZU about time and frequency standards.
The talk focused on Doug’s quest for a reliable frequency standard, and how this had progressed from his early forays on 2m in the early 1970’s, and the acquisition of different types and accuracies of standards through his amateur radio life, culminating in the current standard locked to an accuracy of 1Hz in 10Ghz – useful for 23cms EME!

Doug then went on to cover how to lock modern radio equipment to a GPS based frequency standard and the importance of time synchronisation in modern digital modes – very enlightening.

Please feel free to come along to any of our organised talks, and many thanks to Doug for this evenings informative and interactive presentation.
