The Potomac Valley Radio Club is  proud to announce that  renowned audio 
and RFI expert Jim Brown, K9YC, will be making a presentation to the 
PVRC at Capitol College in Laurel Maryland on Tuesday, October 9th, 
2007.   This a rare opportunity to learn about audio and RFI mitigation 
from one of amateur radio's most well-respected authorities on audio 
engineering, and RFI and its mitigation.

K9YC is an active contester and DXer from his QTH in Santa Cruz, 
California, and currently serving on the Board of Directors of NCCC.   
He became interested in music and radio as a teenager, falling in love 
with jazz and Bach, and qualifying for an amateur radio license before 
his 14th birthday. Three years later he received Amateur Extra Class and 
First Class Radiotelephone licenses, and entered the Electrical 
Engineering program at the University of Cincinnati. He received the 
BSEE in 1964 and has worked in broadcasting and professional audio since 
1960. Since 1985, his consulting practice has specialized in the design 
of sound systems for worship, performance, and sports facilities. More 
recently, his focus has expanded to include research and consulting on 
EMC issues.

Jim is a Fellow of the Audio Engineering Society (AES), and a member of 
the Acoustical Society of America, the Society of Broadcast Engineers, 
and the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, and has 
presented invited papers to all of those societies. He is a member of 
the AES Technical Committee on Acoustics and Sound Reinforcement, and 
the AES Standards Committee's Working Groups on Microphones, 
Intelligibility, Acoustic and Sound Source Modeling, Digital Audio 
Transmission, and Audio Connectors, and is Vice-Chair of the Standards 
Working Group on EMC and Chair of the AES Technical Committee on EMC.
