Technical Training

New Sinclair Video: How To Tune A Ceramic Combiner
Do you know how easy it is to tune a TXC Ceramic Combiner?  Mike Macki, Senior Product Design Engineer at Sinclair Technologies details the steps to tune a Combiner from the TXC family of products. Mike shows you how easy the Combiner can be tuned when you compare it to other products of the same kind. What makes our Combiner stand out is that the tuning rods can be simply adjusted with your fingers, and not with a wrench.  This cuts the tuning time by more than half and response is much better in term of insertion loss.  Click here to go to our YouTube Video and learn more!

Norsat Helps Covenant House Provide Hope to Street Youth
There are hundreds of youth living on the Vancouver streets each night.  The majority of street youth have experienced physical, sexual and or emotional abuse, often at the hands of the adults that were responsible for taking care of them. Sexual exploitation, drug abuse, poverty and illness are commonplace on the streets and many of our youth are re-victimized there, having fled one unsafe situation only to find their circumstances often worse.covenant_house_2016_cheque-presentation

Norsat has been a long-time supporter of the Covenant House which helps homeless, runaway and at-risk young people for short-term residential care through their Crisis Program  and longer term care in their transitional living program Rights of Passage (ROP). Norsat was pleased to once again provide Covenant House with a donation to support their various programs.
