Seminar Proposals

Soliciting Seminar Proposals

We are soliciting proposals for seminars at this year’s Prescott Hamfest.  Presentations will be offered on Friday and Saturday afternoons (June 9th and 10th).

We have a number of rooms available that each seat around 22 people.  There is also a 300 person auditorium.  These rooms and the auditorium have PCs, projectors, internet connectivity, and Skype capability.

To augment your presentation, there is a nearby large flat area available for you to do a demonstration, if desired.  We can provide a canopy, tables, chairs, and a deep cycle 12 volt battery, plus assistance in supporting your demonstration.

We are looking for timely topics for our hamfest seminars.  Examples of Amateur Radio specific possible topics include:

  • Software Defined Radio

  • Antennas and their Installations
  • DXpeditions
  • Digital modes

We are now accepting proposals for seminar presentations.  Please send a brief description of your proposed seminar to Seminar Chair: Doug Theriault – NO1D no1d.doug@gmail.com.

NOTE:  We are scheduling the seminars so that they do not run concurrently with Saturday morning’s tail gate activities, in order to provide everyone the opportunity to attend the seminars.
