    Hi Steve, bias is a DC voltage applied to the device that makes it act in a desired way. Usually the AC voltage acts very differently. This is why various RF circuit stages are often connected together via a capacitor, so that the AC passes but the DC is “blocked.” So the DC sets up the device, and the AC then uses it. I am thinking about a video series called “Ask KEØOG!” and think that would be a better venue to address your question. Sorry I can’t be more clear with just text. 73, Dave

    Dave,
    I find your videos very helpful. Recently, I first studied the ARRL License Manual and then just barely passes the Extra exam. As I have been a commercial real estate appraiser for all of my professional career, I wanted a more thorough understanding of the electronic concepts than just the manual provided. Thus, I turned to your class which was recommended by several of my ham friends. Thanks so much for your help.

    My first question is regarding Bias. What is forward bias, reverse bias and where does the voltage come from?

    Sincerely, Steve WB6ZJD
