Thoughts on HamCamp

Just a few thoughts as I continue to ruminate on the idea.

The idea of the HamCamp is to start with a mini-camp within BarCampCHS. Sessions and presentations should be short (maybe 15-20 minutes) so that a few can be fit into each BarCampCHS block. They can be introductory for new hams/wannabes or cover more advanced topics

  • Good radio conduct
  • Antenna anatomy
  • Assembling a ham shack
  • Licensing/regulations
  • Radio bands
  • Digital radio modes
  • CW (Morse code)
  • Echolink/Winlink/IRLP
  • Contesting

There can be outdoor sessions and demonstrations which obviously won't be constrained by BarCampCHS scheduling.

  • Radio demonstrations
  • Antenna building
