An Eastern MA amateur will have his technical project featured in an upcoming issue of QST Magazine. Jim Hanson, W1TRC of Maynard is shown demonstrating his ultrasonic powerline arc detector at a recent Nashoba Valley Amateur Radio Club meeting. Hanson designed the device to identify power line noise sources caused by arcing. W1TRC says he has used the device to help find fourteen powerline problems near his home.
