Interested in amateur radio? Whether you’re a licensed ham, or just curious what amateur radio is all about, come on down to the Hack Factory on Monday, March 11th at 7PM. We will be having an open discussion about ham radio, and likely some demonstrations using the amateur radio station set up in the front lounge. This event is free and open to the general public.
We realize that many of our members are licensed amateur radio operators. It has been the desire for some time to have a station at the Hack Factory where our licensed operators would be able to enjoy the hobby. Recently, one of our members has loaned us a complete HF station for just this purpose, complete with computer for logging and digital mode fun. The station is small for now but we are planning on expanding the station, getting a club license, and teaching some classes to get new people into this wonderful hobby. In addition to the HF station, we also have a Icom VHF radio for local 2m repeater access. These radios are available to all FCC Licensed – TCMaker members.
We would love you to come and be a part of the fun.. For more detailed information on the station, see our wiki page or contact jrsphoto for more information.
