Friday, June 16, 2017 at 10 AM (Must pre-register!)
We’ve all been frustrated by poor signal level bars on our cell phones, GPS not locating you or signals to weak for your entertainment system to handle. A radio frequency/wireless engineer will explain why these problems happen, what to look for when they do, and what tools to use to best try to fix them. Come with questions and we will try our best to answer them! Great opportunity for the technology challenged as we will make sure you understand the answer without a lot of technical jargon.
