Q2 Tech Day is upon us!

2 min read

Tech Day is upon us again this time we’ve added some new features. From now on we’ll kick off Tech Day with a training session from 10am to 11am. This quarter we’ll be having a presentation from Larry Lamano on passive circuit components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, etc). This will be a great introduction for those wanting to get more experienced with component level ideas and diagnostic.

As always, bring your radios, ht’s, amplifiers, tuners and other gear as we learn what goes in to making them work and better yet, why they break. We do repairs when we can and can test and align most radios.

This is a family event so kids are welcome and no alcoholic beverages will be allowed. Younger kids who attend will need to be supervised as there could be equipment present with high voltages. We take this seriously and we will take every precaution to ensure no one gets hurt at these types of events.

Plan to join us for as long as you can. There is a lot to learn even if engaging in conversations or demonstrations our goal is for you to have a good time learning about this hobby.

If you are interested in amateur radio this will be a great opportunity to ask your questions. Radio programming will be available to licensed amateurs. Sorry, no scanner programming will be available.

Date: Saturday, April 24th, 2021.

Time: 10am to Midnight

Location: 4094 N Farm Road 157, Springfield, MO 65803

Lunch/Dinner: Lunch will be hot dogs and sides, dinner is TBD.

What to bring: Bring a side dish or a dessert. No need to coordinate, we can never have too much pasta salad!

REMEMBER: Since this is a club event, we want to do our best to follow CDC recommended guidelines. Although this location is not in the city limits of Springfield, masks are still encouraged as well as social distancing.
