Open station for tonight has been canceled on account of the weather. Stay warm!
David AD8Y, Kristina KD8OXT and Nathaniel KB1QHX traveled to Boston this January to present a lecture on modulation as part of the Independent Activity Period series on radio science presented by the MIT amateur radio club, W1MX. The handout from the lecture can be downloaded here.
We visited W1MX’s radome on the roof of the Green Building:
We also made time to take in some other MIT sights, including the MIT Electronics Research Society…
…the MIT Hobby Shop….
…and the lab of Dr. Harold Edgerton.
Many thanks to W1MX for inviting us, especially Daniel Sheen KC1EPN. It was a great visit!
