Join our friends from the Sierra Nevada Amateur Radio Society to explore the intricacies of amateur radio. Amateur radio, often referred to as “Ham” radio, is the ability to communicate—across the street, around the world, or even with people and satellites in space! Even when the power’s out, and the land lines and cell phones don’t work, with a battery, a radio, and a wire, Ham radio is there.
At this event you can:
- Talk on the radio with other Ham radio operators
- Learn Morse code
- Learn the fascinating history and science of amateur radio
- Find out how amateur radio can communicate with astronauts in space
- Attend demonstrations of test digital radio equipment
