2985 Tech Connect Radio Club 2023 TechFest!

I had the privilege of leading the resurrection of the 285 Tech Connect Radio Club (NA0TC) TechFest this year, which was held on Saturday November 4th after a four-year hiatus. TechFest is a club tradition dating back to 2008, so it was awesome to get this time-honored event off the ground again.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with TechFest, it's a 6-hour event that features speakers on all sorts of amateur radio technical topics. This year's topics included 3D printing, selecting a new HF radio and the ARRS clean signal initiative, APRS, using ham radio at Starhaven observatory, and a primer on using the NanoVNA.

If you missed the event, have no fear--we recorded the whole day and the presentations and videos are available for viewing for free! Here are the links. There is also a YouTube playlist with all of the videos available as well.
