August 21: General Meeting – SOARA Tech Fair

Please join us at the Norman P. Murray Center in Mission Viejo, CA on Monday, 8/21 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.  This event is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.

Bring your pet Tech projects for show and tell sharing with fellow members.  This has proven to be fun and well received in previous years.
