285 TechFest Sat. Nov 11 – BE THERE!

One of the best ham radio deals in Colorado is coming up on Saturday, Nov. 11, in Lakewood — the annual 285 Tech Connect Radio Club’s TechFest.

The TechFest boasts five hours of presentations on technical topics related to amateur radio, plus a “demo corner” where club members show off some of their operating technology. All for only ten bucks!

This educational feast runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with a 1-hour break for lunch. The TechFest presentation lineup includes these speakers and topics:

  • KØNA – Larry Weinstein: Practical Tricks with Transformers
  • NØCU – Bill Leonard: Transmission Lines as Impedance Transformers
  • W6OAV – Bill Rinker: Small Magnetic Transmitting Loops Demystified
  • ACØKQ – Willem Schreüder: Raspberry Pi Software Defined Radio
  • ABØCD – Dick Schneider: QRP 101 – The Basics

Doors open for registration at 8:00AM. Cash on the dash. No time for pre-registration. For morning talk-in, we’ll be using the 145.145 CRA Repeater.

So be there! It’s at the Lakewood Elks Lodge, 1455 Newland Street, Lakewood, CO, in the upstairs dining room. Refreshments will be available. You are on your own for lunch.
