Yesterday, I spent the day at the Duke City Hamfest, Albuquerque’s largest annual ham radio event.
At Duke City Hamfest, I attended a lecture on coaxial cable, another on STEM projects that happened this summer at Valley High School, an ARRL Forum, and another on kit building in remote locations. The instructor of the last session has a hobby of building radio and electronic kits at parks, libraries and restaurants, which proves that you don’t need a fancy bench and all to be a “homebrewer” of electronics.
After the final presentation, I went into a class where we built a small 20 meter transceiver. I have not tested it yet, but I think it looks good. This particular kit had no soldering involved. I will test the transmit side, as I do not have a high impedance set of earphones for the receive side.
In the evening, we went to Solid Grounds Coffee House and listened to Eileen and Cross Country, which was an excellent country band. I highly recommend this band, if you ever get a chance to hear them.
Thank you for reading my post.
