W4UVA will hold an open house on Sunday, 10 November 2019, from 2-4pm at the W4UVA shack. (See https://www.w4uva.org/location/ for directions.)
We will be operating a voice station and a digital station for DX (distance) contacts around the world; a satellite antenna and radio for making contacts through amateur radio satellites; a Winlink radio email station for sending email via amateur radio; and an amateur radio mesh networking node. We’ll also be prepared to talk about amateur radio emergency communications. Licensed amateur radio operators will be available to help you make your first contact if you are not yet licensed!
These are only a few of the many, many areas of interest you can pursue through amateur radio. Amateur radio even looks good on an resume when you’re looking for that first engineering or technical job! Drop by and learn about amateur radio and the W4UVA club.
Although this event is targeted at UVa students, faculty, staff, and alumni, anyone is welcome to drop by and see what’s happening!
