Maker Faire Milwaukee 9/26 - 9/27/2015
« on: July 09, 2015, 07:00:56 PM »
Maker Faire Milwaukee will be happening the weekend of September 26th and 27th, 2015.
Yes, it's the same weekend as the Ozaukee Radio Club's Fall Swapfest.    You could attend
the swapfest, and then head down the State Fair Park to attend this Maker Faire. 
Entrance is free, parking is something like $5.00.

There are a group of Amateur Radio enthusiasts from several area clubs that plan to have an
exhibit or two.    As of June 21st, our group has been approved to have an area.   We are still
in the planning stages for what exactly we would exhibit or demonstrate.    Depending on our
booth location, we hope to run some coax out to some antennas.

I'm told that last year they had over 35,000 in attendance for the two day event.    The group
of us feel that they might be another good way to show others what Amateur Radio is all about...
or at least part of it.

More to come as plans get finalized.
