Test equipment will be available for checking noise figure, amplifier gain, output power, phase noise and impedance. We hope to arrange suitable nearby facilities for Saturday morning to set up an antenna gain and pattern test range.

There will, of course, be activities for the family as well, since Dayton offers many cultural attractions and great shopping. The Museum of the United States Air Force recently completed a major expansion of its indoor exhibit area, substantially increasing the number of aircraft and historical items on display.
