Duncan Aviation Avionics Experts to Present HF Mysteries in Troubleshooting

LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation Avionics Experts Dan Magnus and Scott McKenzie will present the course HF Mysteries in Troubleshooting at the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 25-28, 2013. In addition, the presentation will be given at AEA's U.S. regional meetings, set for September 25-27 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and November 6-8 in Kansas City, Missouri.

The course will cover the basic high frequency (HF) technology and get into the quirks inherent in these systems. Discussion will include tuning, grounding and idiosyncrasies of different systems, including antennas. The session will conclude with a question and answer session and the critical exchange of pilot and crew debriefs.

"Most communication systems on aircraft are relatively simple, with a transmitter/receiver, the corresponding antenna and a controller," said Scott McKenzie, Avionics Tech Rep at Duncan Aviation. "The HF system is a little more complex as there are additional components needed to get the job done. Our goal is to put our experience to work to help operators solve common HF issues."
