September 2019 Club Activities - Surface Mount Class

On September 21, 2019, VOI held a two hour Surface Mount Soldering class/project, free for members, and $10 for non-members. The project was a 20 watt dummy load. Many thanks to John Kernkamp WB4YJT for designing the circuit board, getting it printed, and bringing his testing equipment to the class. Many thanks to Doug Rich W7DVR for putting together the circuit components and the soldering kits. At the end of class, all dummy loads were completed and all were working, except one, which had a defective component. Everybody had a good time and appreciated the opportunity to learn and practice some new soldering techniques. VOI will do this project again, so you too, can enjoy this rewarding learning experience.
