KC1QAY: “A Hands-On Approach to Ham Radio” at at New England Sci-Tech ARS Meeting, January 4, 2022

New England Sci Tech logoThe New England Sci-Tech Amateur Radio Society (NEST) will meet on-line and in-person on January 4, 2022 at 7 PM and feature Steve Kondo, KC1QAY,  who will present on “A Hands-On Approach To Ham Radio.”
Naturally a significant portion of ham radio sub-hobbies involve electronic circuits. Ham radio also gives us the opportunity to develop hands-on skills when it comes to making test equipment, building antennas, troubleshooting, and learning new software. Steve Kondo, KC1QAY, would like to share three basic, hands-on projects that a beginner to this hobby can complete in a weekend.  
Bio: Steve earned his second Technician license in November of 2021. He is a hands-on mechanical engineer with 20 years of product development and manufacturing experience ranging from aerospace to IoT hardware. Steve currently designs, builds, and maintains 4000 pound robots consisting of control, propulsion, dynamic, sensing, and electronic sub-systems for automated railroad track inspection. Steve machines, welds, and 3D prints in his home shop, and on occasion will attempt to write useful code.
Come meet at NEST! We usually have pizza! (Face masks still required, please.)
5:00-7:00: radio room open; informal radio activities.
