Aug 20th: General Meeting – SOARA  Tech Fair

All are welcome to join SOARA at the Norman P. Murray Center in Mission Viejo, CA on Monday, 8/20 at 7:00 pm for our General Meeting and annual Tech Fair.

The SOARA Fair is held once a year during the August general club meeting where club subject matter experts will hold “mini-seminars” on a range of Amateur Radio and electronic topics. The mini-seminars are held informally and you can rotate from seminar to seminar.

A sample of this year’s program includes:
Ed WA6ED – Recent SOARA Saturday projects and maybe a sneak peek at some upcoming projects
Don KE6BXT –  AREDN Mesh Networking System
Charley  WA6RUZ – ARES/RACES Emergency Preparedness
Jimmy KK6TTL – 10-Band HF QRP radio design and a 2-Watt HF beacon design.
Garren KB6FAS – Power Supply load testing. Bring your power supply to the fair and see what it is doing … or not doing.
Robert  KE6BLR – Space Communication: connecting to the ISS, pSat and pcSat via APRS with a home brew az/el with the Arrow II antenna for 2 Meters.
Battery Box Table – Talk with various builders about their versions of homemade Battery Boxes. If you have a unique or really cool battery box; put your call sign on it and bring it in.

This FREE event is open to the public. It is always fun, informative and well received by all!

Also, if you have a pet Tech project and wish to share it with fellow members, please contact us now so we may reserve you a location in the room!
