The Newport Radio Club is putting an amateur radio presence at the Mini Makers Faire in Fall River this Sunday.
This sounds like a great opportunity to appeal to young science/radio/experimental nerds like we used to be !!

NCRC has a booth at the Southcoast MiniMakerFaire at the Fall River YMCA on Sunday October 1.
Details at: http://southcoast.makerfaire.com/
And our both description at: http://southcoast.makerfaire.com/maker/entry/31/
We need some help setting up on Sunday morning before 10 am and help running the station in a GOTA mode similar to Field Day from 10 am to 4 pm. Some of us are going to help on soldering at another booth but will have a 40/20m station and show Pixies operating CW. Bring your Pixie if you want.
We also plan to erect a 40m dipole on Thursday afternoon to simplify setup on Sunday. Help may be needed for this.
