RMSC Holiday Science and Technology Days - Rochester

RMSC Holiday Science and Technology Days By Peter Fournia, W2SKY

Rochester Amateur Radio Association (RaRa) will again host amateur radio exhibits at the Rochester Museum and Science Center (RMSC) for 4 days during the Christmas – New Years holiday. This is part of the RMSC Holiday Science and Technology Days and will be the 19th year that we have participated in this event. It is a MAJOR exhibit for ham radio that exposes hundreds to thousands of people to our hobby / advocation. We have many basic electromagnetism and Morse Code exhibits ready to roll. However, we are always looking for new and interesting additions.

Do you have something to add? Some hams volunteers bring their own project to exhibit when they are present while other volunteers may leave the equipment to allow others my demonstrate it.

The dates are Wednesday, December 27 through Saturday, December 30, 2017 from about 10 AM to 3 PM each day. There will be a very active special events station led by Doug Stewart, N2BEG of the RDXA. RARA will lead the hands-on exhibits. RARA typically has 2 to 4 hams that demonstrate aspects of ham radio and radio communications technology. RDXA staffs and operates the HF special events station.

More information is available in the “Public Service” section on the RARA website: You can also sign up on the website to volunteer for a day of your choice. We will also pass around a sign-up sheet at our December 6th RARA meeting. Peter Fournia, W2SKY and Don Kiser AC2EV will serve as Co-captains for this years event.
