ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio, helps the Amateur Radio Service address EMC problems. In this presentation, Ed Hare, W1RFI, ARRL's Laboratory Manager, explains the many different ways that ARRL helps do this. Its help for amateurs also extends into helping industry resolve interference problems, from the creation of good industry standards to the development of case-by-case solutions should problems still occur. .


Ed Hare, W1RFI, is employed by ARRL, the National Association for Amateur Radio. With 16 years experience in the electronics industry, he came to 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 EMC articles, ranging from articles for QST and the "ARRL Handbook" to articles about the practical aspects of EMC that have appeared in professional trade journals. He is also one of the editors and authors of the ARRL "RFI Book" and the author of the ARRL's book on RF exposure, "RF Exposure and You." He is very active in several EMC programs at ARRL, holding voting membership on the IEEE EMC Society Standards Development Committee as elected Secretary, the ANSI accredited C63® Committee as the Vice Chair of the immunity subcommittee, the IEEE P1775 BPL EMC committee and others, 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, the Communications Society and the Power and Energy Society. His personal Amateur Radio operating interest is low-powered CW, where Ed’s motto is, “Five Watts is a Lot of Power!” He is presently doing work on HF using 10 milliwatts, reporting having made contact with 30 states from New England.
