This week we bring on Dave Distler to talk about the EMDrive once more. REMEMBER: DAVE IS A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL — DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BUILD YOUR OWN EMDRIVE AT HOME!
Dave advanced through three high-tech RF & Microwave manufacturing companies in 35 years. He started out as a technician, then Quality Control, Sales and Applications Engineering, to Sale and Marketing Manager and finally to Product Line Manager. He has traveled worldwide extensively and met with high level Engineers designing and testing transmission and receive systems for Military, Aerospace, Space and Commercial systems. He holds an Extra Class Amateur Radio License and has built and designed a variety of high power RF Systems. Today, he is semi-retired and enjoys returning to his roots in electronics with designing, building and testing what he at first considered an implausible Electromagnetic Propulsion device.
