On Saturday, January 28th the Nashua Area Radio Club (Nashua ARC) will be hosting a special event for interested kids, parents, and friends in the community about the joy of amateur radio at MakeIt Labs in Nashua from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. Among our activities will be a get-on-the-air station where you are invited to hop on the radio and make a contact either somewhere in the country or even somewhere else in the world, participate in a Digital Amateur TV transmission with a home-built Digital Amateur TV station which uses a Raspberry Pi to control the transceiver and additional system components, explore the design and construction of a satellite station setup which is used to contact amateur radio satellites in Low-Earth Orbit, and finally an invitation to participate in an electronics kit-build with Nashua ARC on 18 Feb. We are going to build an inexpensive digital oscilloscope from a ready-made kit: a great way to learn about science and engineering! (Details can be found on our website: http://n1fd.org/2016/03/27/inexpensive-diy-digital-oscilloscope-kit/). We are looking, especially, to interest young people due to amateur radio’s natural overlap in STEM activities. Interested parties are invited to drop in at any time, chat, and stay for as long as you like to participate! If you would like more information, please email Brian Smigielski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Saturday) 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
