FARA at Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire

FARA will be participating in the Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire as an Enthusiast/Contributing Sponsor on Saturday, April 29, from 10am-4pm at the Mashpee High School.

"Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these "makers" come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned."

Assistance is needed from FARA members with:
  • Setup (8-10am)
  • Greeting the public
  • Operating/getting the public on the air
  • Helping the public (kids) construct Morse code keys
  • Takedown (4pm until done)
Because the Maker Faire is all about do-it-yourself, we would prefer to display and use equipment (radios and antennas) that is constructed from a kit or scratch-built.

Contact Brent, W1NCH at W1NCH@arrl.net if you can help, and/or loan equipment for display or operating.
