K7UAZ regularly particpates in Science City, part of the Tucson Festival of Books, typically held in March. This is a great opportunity to introduce Amateur Radio to the general public. Every year we have fun at this event!
We usually set up a couple of tables to demonstrate radios, talk about radio theory and share our exciting hobby with visitors. Demonstrations may include:
- HF Radio
- Software Defined Radio (SDR)
- Satellite contacts
- Fox Hunting
- Mesh network
Volunteers to help promote the club are always welcome. Volunteers receive a free Science City t-shirt; free water and snacks will also be available during the weekend to volunteers. The festival hours are 9:30am - 5:30pm both days. We will also need volunteers to help setup each morning as well as tear down.
If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know. Also, please tell me what t-shirt size you would like so we can let the Science City organizers know for their order planning.
