Upcoming Meeting Details

Meeting Date: December 02, 2014


Our next meeting is just over three weeks away on Tuesday, December 2nd. This special meeting time is to accommodate those who will be away for the week of Thanksgiving and our speaker who is traveling quite a distance. I am pleased to welcome Mr. Josh Gerst of RF Connect ( as our guest speaker. Josh has more than 15 years of experience in RF engineering and management in the wireless industry. Prior to joining RF Connect as Vice President of Engineering, Josh was Director of Engineering at Powerwave Technologies where he focused on distributed antenna system design and deployment. In his career, Josh has worked in engineering and engineering management at companies ranging from a small start-up smart antenna company, Metawave, to the largest wireless equipment OEM in the world, Ericsson. Josh has a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Iowa State University.

With all his experience in RF the topic Josh will be discussing is (you guessed it) the technology used by RF Connect to solve the plethora of cellular/wireless coverage issues they deal with daily. Josh will present an overview of RF technologies, discuss what Distributed Antenna Systems are and how they are used as well as the different solution types for the problems they encounter. He will touch on the major vendors that supply equipment. This will be a very informative talk for anyone who has wireless coverage issues (who doesn't!) or anyone just interested in the technology.

The format for this meeting is as follows:
5:30pm - Dinner at Seoul Garden (3321 28th St SE, 49512 - in front of Woodland Mall)
7:00pm - Meeting at DornerWorks, Ltd. (3445 Lake Eastbrook Blvd SE, 49546 -

Please respond to this email with an RSVP if you would like to attend the dinner portion, but feel free to show up last minute for the presentation too!

Thank you,
Otto Muller
