Four Days in May QRP ARCI Meet Up 2015 at Dayton

This is the big QRP event and the buildathon is a key component to the fun



Friday 15 May 2015
3.30pm – 8.00pm

Once again the Buildathon will be hosted by Rex Harper W1REX !

This year Buildathon will be held on Friday afternoon/evening. Start time is flexible to cater for those returning from the Hamvention. You can start your project between 3.30pm and 5.30pm. It ends at 8.00pm but will probably continue until everyone has completed their project.

The Buildathon is a group build of a small project that can be completed in around 2 – 3 hours (depending on experience). Beginners are particularly encouraged and there will be plenty of people around to help.

This year the project is to build 4 items of useful test equipment –

  • a simple and compact RF probe
  • a dummy load with RF power measurement
  • a multi-band crystal controlled signal generator
  • a simple RF frequency counter

Anyone can participate in Buildathon.
Registration is just $35, this includes the project kits, elmering during the Buildathon AND the now infamous Buildathon Pizza Party at 5.30pm !
