Call for 2017 Tech Talks

With the busy month of January being over with (holidays, Skywarn and Tarrant RACES training complete), we can now refocus on our planned club activities. One of the popular events we do, and would like to do more often, are Tech Talks. We traditionally do our Tech Talk Series on the first Saturday of the month, but are flexible.

Tech Talk subjects can range from discussions on operating digital, to how to build antennas, to EmComm operations. This is a call out to anyone, club member or not, that would like have an opportunity to teach a subject, please let us know. They are fun and your audience usually like having the chance to learn a new subject.

You can email us using the Contact page. Just select “Tech Talks” from the drop down. We hope to hear from you.
