Rocky Mountain Ham Radio – New Mexico (RMHAM) is pleased to announce its seventh annual New Mexico TechFest, an ARRL-sanctioned operating specialty event, on Saturday, February 27, 2021. TechFest features a day of quality presentations and demonstrations provided by some of New Mexico and Colorado’s (and beyond) leading technical hams on a variety of emerging and relevant topics within amateur radio. Its purpose is to facilitate the sharing of technical knowledge and collaboration within the amateur radio community, and to encourage the discussion of new ideas with one another.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty around New Mexico’s public health orders, this year’s event will be conducted virtually.
Please visit https://www.rmham.org/wordpress/new-mexico-techfest to view the lineup, read the abstracts, learn about this year’s speakers, and register to attend TechFest.
TechFest is open to all interested hams. Admission is $10. Proceeds will offset event related expenses…see website for details.
Presentation-related prizes will be drawn throughout the event. In addition, this year’s TechFest will feature the launch of a pico balloon (weather permitting), intended to travel across the country and possibly the world while carrying a VHF APRS or HF WSPR beacon. Hams will be able to track the location of this balloon online once launched.
Lots of information awaits you at the New Mexico TechFest (http://www.rmham.org/wordpress/new-mexico-techfest). We look forward to your participation!
President, Rocky Mountain Ham Radio — New Mexico
