About this Event
>> There will be a fee of $10 to cover the cost of the parts. All proceeds will go toward parts, and any balance will be donated to the Electronics Committee. <<
In this class you will receive a sandwich bag of nine parts and use them to assemble your own half watt radio transmitter. Since this transmitter will be connected to a 'dummy load' (two of the parts), you do not need to be a licensed Amateur Radio operator to build and operate this transmitter. But it can transmit to a nearby (within a few feet) radio receiver to allow you to hear the Morse code!
If you are a licensed operator we will be discussing the modifications you can make to put the radio on the air and make contacts with others across the globe! The class will provide introduction to the basics of radio transmitter operation, Manhattan circuit building (a technique for prototyping analog circuits), soldering, and using a test bench (oscilloscope, meter, etc...) to test and characterize your circuits.
