We’re holding a ham cram/exam this Saturday to help participants in the March for Science get licensed. All are welcome. Information at: https://www.facebook.com/events/1853893414885001/
We’ve received a request to coordinate communications for Cleveland’s March for Science on April 22. If you’re interested in volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re also tentatively planning a ham cram this Saturday for students and community members interested in getting licensed before the march; further bulletins will be posted here.
Our own Rachel AC8XY will be giving a talk at CWRU Hacker Society tomorrow evening: Glennan 408 at 7:30 pm. The talk description is below:
Ham, or amateur radio, has a long and proud history of jerry-rigged, taped-together, and improvised solutions. With a license, you can communicate in a variety of different modes, code programs, solder circuits, and experiment with a segment of the electromagnetic spectrum. I will be giving a quick intro to amateur radio history, experiments, and operations, as well as ways to get involved on this campus.
Last weekend, KB3WOS, KB1QHX and I presented our paper on ham radio sloyd at the IEEE Integrated STEM Education Conference in Princeton, NJ. We got a fantastic tour of the local ham radio sights from Dr. Rebecca Mercuri, KA3IAX, whom we met during the conference, and had some nice QSOs on the N2RE repeater.
Well done, all!
