The ARRL will present a “Meet the Author” area in the ARRL EXPO at the 2013Dayton Hamvention®, giving visitors an opportunity to speak with authors who are inspiring today’s radio experimenters, operators and innovators.
Three authors will be in the ARRL EXPO area:
- Leigh Klotz Jr, WA5ZNU, lead editor of Ham Radio for Arduino and PICAXE. Klotz and other contributors have designed projects to help introduce you to the fun and rewards of experimenting with microcontrollers. With inexpensive microcontroller platforms — such as the popular open-source Arduino board — readily available parts, components and accessory boards, the possibilities are limitless: The book offers projects, with code, for beacon transmitters, keyers, antenna position controllers, RTTY and digital mode decoders, waterfall displays and more.
- Eric P. Nichols, KL7AJ, author of Radio Science for the Radio Amateur. Nichols guides readers through some of the most fascinating “nooks and crannies” of the radio universe. Find out how to make a meaningful contribution to science and technology as a ham radio operator, regardless of your experience and resources.
- Don Keith, N4KC, author of Riding the Shortwaves: Exploring the Magic of Amateur Radio. This book is filled with dozens of reasons to join the ranks of Amateur Radio enthusiasts. Keith’s entertaining and informative style presents today’s ham radio as bigger and more vibrant than ever as he focuses on digital communications, software-defined and computer controlled radios, space technology and more.
I bet this meeting slipped up on a few of you, that’s OK we had a good meeting, and if you missed it, here are the high spots. We talk about the success of the Hamfest, also about the up coming Aloft at the Heritage Park in Simpsonville, and we talked about Field Day 2013, and how much fun, we’re going to have this year.We had 2 guest, and they filled out apps. and turned them in already, also we had 3 new Hams approved and 2 renewals.
We’re Growing Again !!!!
On another subject I’m sorry about the No Show, for the Food Vendor this year, at the Hamfest, I talked to him Monday, and his Mother had a stroke on Friday, and he forgot to call me, so I could find someone else.
