W3SZ — Station Automation Symposium
FRIDAY SYMPOSIUM, April 20, 1:30 to 5:30 PM
Roger Rehr, W3SZ, will lead a symposium on Station Automation.
In the final part of the symposium, participants will have the
opportunity to do some simple programming of an Arduino board
and take it home for further experimentation.
Arduino MEGA boards will be available to participants at a cost of $10,
but must be reserved by March 31 so that we can get the quantity price.
Please send email to [email protected]. If you already have an Arduino board, or just wish to be a spectator, then there is no cost.
Participants are asked to bring a Windows laptop if you have one, and to download some software in advance so that we don’t overwhelm the hotel Wifi – Roger will guide you through installation.
ALTERNATE FRIDAY PROGRAM
For those not interested in the Friday Symposium, there will be a Self-Guided Tour of New England Aviation Museum in Windsor Locks, CT. Please meet in the hotel lobby at 1:30pm. We will need folks who are able to drive and transport others on the 1/2 hour trip to the museum.email Mark K1MAP [email protected]
