See What Makers Do - SB Hackerspace Open House
by Rod Fritz (rod＠sbatv.org)
The Santa Barbara Hackerspace group (aka SBHX and SB Makerspace) has moved to an exciting new facility at 5782 Thornwood Drive in Goleta.
The general public is invited to its Grand Opening open house at 6pm on July 17, 2015.
SBHX and SBARC members have much in common. Several members belong to both groups.
There is great potential synergy in the overlap of these groups since both embrace radios, computers, old and new technologies, construction, education and creativity.
I encourage you to attend this open house to meet the friendly and passionate members of SBHX and to see their new facility and what they do.
Ask them about ham radio and they can tell that several of their members are active hams.
They have had an operational HF, VHF/UHF station for a long time. They have launched balloons with ham radio on board, and they are producing a 2-meter APRS transmitter using Arduino technology.
Don't hesitate to become a member of SB Hackerspace. It might be the best thing you can do today to make ham radio even more exciting for you.
The SBARC New Technologies Committee promotes the integration of new technologies into Amateur Radio.
Let's all team up to use new technologies to enhance amateur radio, interest more and younger participants, teach each other about new devices and processes and more effectively serve ourselves and the community.
