Radio Frequency Interference and the Radio Amateur” (RFI Seminar)

May 19, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm America/New York Timezone

Electromagnetic Compatibility Society

Speaker:   Mr. Ed Hare – Vice President of Standards for the Board of the EMC Society

ARRL Laboratory Manager (American Radio Relay League)

Come listen to Ed Hare talk about RFI in the home, from an Amateur Radio Operators perspective. Ed has a fun and informative style that you are sure to like.

Radio Frequency Interference and the Radio Amateur” (RFI Seminar) EMI is a problem that affects hams and their neighbors alike. Ed Hare, W1RFI, ARRL Laboratory Manager and one of the editors of the ARRL RFI Book, has put together this 30-minute slide presentation to give an overview of politics, personalities and technical issues involved in EMI control. His presentation outlines the standard causes and cures for interference. The question-and-answer session that follows the formal slide presentation turns this into a real RFI workshop.

Biography: Ed Hare, W1RFI, is employed by ARRL, the National Association for Amateur Radio. After an industry career in product testing, he came to work at ARRL HQ in 1986. He started as ARRL’s “Product Review” test engineer, moved on to becoming ARRL’s “RFI guru” (notice his call!) and he now holds the position of Laboratory Manager. Over the years he has written quite a number of RFI articles, ranging from articles for QST and the “ARRL Handbook” to articles about the practical aspects of RFI that have appeared in professional trade journals. He is also one of the authors of the ARRL “RFI Book” and the editor of the ARRL’s book on RF exposure, “RF Exposure and You.”

He is very active holding a seat for Amateur Radio on various industry committees, serving as a voting membership on the IEEE EMC Society Standards Development and Education Committee, the ANSI accredited C63® EMC Committee as Chair of Subcommittee 5 on Immunity, and is the IEEE EMC Society Vice President of Standards, representing ARRL and the interests of Amateur Radio as industry standards are developed. He is a member of the IEEE Standards Association, the IEEE EMC Society and the IEEE Power Engineering Society.

Ed serves the RF Safety Committee as a voting member and as the ARRL HQ staff liaison.

His personal operating interest is QRP CW, where Ed’s motto is, “Five Watts is a Lot of Power!”  He is presently doing work on HF using 10 milliwatts, reporting 30 states worked, all in the ARRL CW Sweepstakes.
