The Amateur Radio Experimenter’s Group achieved it’s goals of putting amateur radio before the public at the Adelaide Maker Faire 2016 held on November 6th, with a huge amount of interested generated from the stand and the 15 minute presentation given at the event by Mark VK5QI on Project Horus. Those who manned the stand couldn’t be happier with the response, and genuinely hope to hear further from a number of people who have had their interest sparked in the hobby in the near future!
A huge thank you has to go to Kim VK5FJ who coordinated AREG’s presence, as well as to Mark VK5QI who prepared much of the Project Horus material for the stand. A number of other members also spent most of the day there manning the stand promoting Amateur Radio, as well as to those members behind the scenes who helped with preparing publicity handouts and business cards for the event (Scott VK5TST, Gary VK5FGRY and Mark VK5QI). A huge thank you to all of you as well!
AREG certainly hopes to be back at the Maker Faire in 2017!
