The IHF is offering an excursion to Rohde & Schwarz in Munich on November 26th /27th 2013. Departure will be in Tuesday afternoon by train. We will be back in Aachen in the late Wednesday evening. Transportation and accommodation are free of charge.
Up to 20 persons can join the trip so please register at the institute’s secretary.
During the introduction week the IHF invited about 30 students of the first semester to get to know the institute. Part of the presentation was a visit in the antenna measurement chamber and the radio amateur station. The main attraction itself was building and soldering a prepared battery powered FM Radio. After some hour all loudspeakers were playing local radio stations. The feedback of the students was very positive due to the practical do-it-yourself part.
