Rochester mini maker faire…

[xarc] Rochester mini maker faire…

is Saturday November 22nd at the riverside convention center. I’m running the multi-club ham radio booth and we will have code keys for kids to build, homebrew and kit radios to show off, antennas, APRS, hidden transmitters, high altitude balloon trackers, broadband hamnet mesh, and more.
I have most of the volunteers I need but you are welcome to come hangout with us. tickets are cheaper in advance. bring kids if you have them. check out the booths about robots, astronomy, microcontrollers, arts and crafts, and 90 more.
if you have a DIY radio gadget you want the kids to see, please get it to me so we can display it.
