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
- Arduino/Raspberry Pi applications
- Antennas and their Installations
- Digital modes
- Public Service
- Satellite communications.
- RFI Mitigation
- Lightning and EMP Protection
- Coax Loss and Measurement Techniques
- Operating Practices, DX Code of Conduct
In addition we welcome topics of interest to non-hams and attendees wishing to learn more about ham radio.
We are now accepting proposals for seminar presentations. Please send a brief description of your proposed seminar to Seminar Chair: Doug Theriault – NO1D email@example.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.
