quote icon Radio Quote of the Month:
"You see, the wire telegraph is a kind of very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is there is no cat." - Albert Einstein

We  broadcast many of our meetings live.

Regenerative Loop Antennas

by Prof. Joe Jesson

Join us for our January meeting as Technical Coordinator Al Klase.

Loop antennas are hot topic today and improved directional loop antennas are key for having great BCB Dxing fun. Joe discusses the earliest 1924 patent which adds regeneration to a loop antenna to get improved selectivity and other performance enhancements.

The regenerative loop antenna inventor, Vladimir Kosmich Zworykin went on to work for RCA and is considered to be a pioneer of television technology (Sarnoff called him THE inventor of television)!  Joe reverse engineers a commercial regen loop - the Kiwa Medium Wave air core loop antenna - with the idea of designing and making one... Could be a cool NJARC project if we can get a critical mass of members interested :-)  

Currently, Prof Joe Jesson is an adjunct ECE Professor at The College of New Jersey and CEO of a Consulting Company, RFSigint Group. Maybe his 3rd retirement will work this time.

Don't forget that besides our regular monthly meetings, there are informal social gatherings on Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday.  Watch your email from The NJARC Communicator for the log-in information.

The New Jersey Antique Radio Club is dedicated to the preservation of radio history. The club usually meets on the second Friday of each month. Check the meeting announcement each month for the location of that month's meeting and any deviation from the usual night. There is a small Radio Swap Meet before and after the meetings which start promptly at 7:30 PM. Every month there is a "Tech Talk" radio collecting presentation. Anyone interested in old radios is welcome to attend and join. Several times a year, the club sponsors a swapmeet featuring an antique radio flea market and auction.


Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the brave and the innocent
