Several FARA members staffed FARA's Maker Faire exhibit, providing ham radio information, live demonstrations and a clothes pin key building activity.  Among the FARA members working were: Gene Bradeen (KX1C), Lee Thomas (NQ1L), Will Plikaitis (KB1WLY), Alan Duester (KC1JLV), Brian Pierce (W1HXN), Alan Costa (KA1QMA), Geoff Allsup (W1OH) and Mike (KC1HCW).  Mike spent virtually the entire time doing the clothes pin key building activity.

Geoff worked outside, making satellite contacts.  He managed nine contacts during one pass of Saudi-Oscar 50 ( SO-50 ).  The satellite pass photo was taken by Geoff's granddaughter Ella, KC1HJF.   The other photos were taken by Lee Thomas.
