New Mexico TechFest -- Presentation call reminder

Brian Mileshosky

Greetings — 

If you are interested in providing a presentation, posterboard, or demonstration at the 2019 New Mexico TechFest next February, this is a kind reminder to submit your proposal(s) before the January 1 deadline which looms just a couple weeks from now.

CALL FOR TECHFEST PRESENTATIONS, POSTERBOARDS, AND DEMONSTRATIONS: The New Mexico TechFest seeks presentations, posterboards, and demos on emerging and relevant amateur radio technical topics, techniques, and applications.   If you’ve been working on a special project, are experimenting with a technical topic, or have discovered or adopted a technology or technique that you’re applying within amateur radio, TechFest is a great venue to share your knowledge with the amateur radio community in a casual and friendly environment.  Presentations will generally be 50 minutes in total length.  Shorter posterboard talks and demos can occur at various times during the event.  AC-powered tables will be provided to facilitate presentations and demos.  Hams interested in providing a presentation, posterboard, or demonstration are asked to submit a brief summary/abstract of their proposed topic for consideration by January 1st. Visit the New Mexico TechFest website for submission details and key dates.

The fifth annual New Mexico TechFest, an ARRL-sanctioned operating specialty event organized by Rocky Mountain Ham Radio - New Mexico, will take place Saturday, February 23, 2019.  TechFest features a day of quality presentations and demonstrations provided by some of New Mexico and Colorado’s leading technical hams on a variety of emerging and relevant topics within amateur radio.  The event’s purpose is to help expand attendees’ technical knowledge, facilitate collaboration, and encourage the discussion of new ideas with one another.

TechFest is open to all interested hams and will occur at the New Mexico Veterans’ Memorial Event Center located at 1100 Louisiana Blvd SE, Albuquerque, NM 87108.  Admission is $10.  Online registration will open the week of January 6, after the event’s presentations are announced.

Presentation-related prizes will be drawn throughout the event. Refreshments including coffee, water, and light snacks will be available. Optional lunch, catered by local small business, will be available at an additional cost.
