JULY 2018

Our dynamic hobby and your Radio License offer opportunities to build, explore, experiment and discover.

As part of our club’s effort to facilitate curiosity and, perhaps, innovation, we are sponsoring a “Ham Happening”— Saturday Tech Seminars dedicated to learning outside of the box.

We will have 4 or 5 speakers address issues of interest in back-to-back one-hour plenary sessions, inclusive of questions. There will be a modest “funeral-style” lunch at noon. The day will begin at 9:00 am and end at approximately 4:00 pm.

So far, speakers and topics include:

-Dr. Katanya Kuntz, of IQC (the Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo) will speak on quantum communications;

-Dr. Gord Hayward, Professor Emeritus, University of Guelph, ve3EOS, will present an inno- vative use of AM;

-Ted Rypma,ve3TRQ, will explain and demonstrate pop-up Mesh networks that use re- purposed internet routers;

-Robert Moyer, ve3NXT, licensee for our local Digital repeater will explore several aspects of DMR(digital mobile radio).

Additional speakers are yet to confirm.
