What a Bunch of Hams
Amateur Radio Operators from all over the great state of Texas will meet for Summerfest, Fri-Sat, Jul 31-Aug 1 at the Red Lion Hotel at I-35 & 290. This Austin Hamfest will offer a flea market of hardware and seminars covering a wide variety of topics like worldwide communication, low power operations, satellite communications, computer networking, Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS), and weather and emergency communications. Ham-sters are often the front line of communications during civil emergencies. Local meteorologists and NOAA weather radio reps will be on hand for presentations. Of course, our own Austin Amateur Radio Club will be there, making (radio) waves. The club holds monthly meetings at the Luby's off North Loop every second Tuesday of the month. firstname.lastname@example.org or W5SH or 345-0800.
