This note is to announce that the presentation, posterboard, and demo lineup for this year’s New Mexico TechFest has been released.  In addition, online registration for the event is now open!

Please visit to view the lineup, read the abstracts, and register to attend TechFest.

The sixth annual New Mexico TechFest, an ARRL-sanctioned operating specialty event sponsored by Rocky Mountain Ham Radio, will take place on Saturday, February 29, 2020.  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.  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.

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.

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.

In addition, this year’s TechFest will feature the launch of a pico balloon, intended to travel across the country and possibly the world while carrying a VHF APRS or HF WSPR beacon.  Ham will be able to track the location of this balloon online once launched.
