**This is Not Your Father's HAM Radio!**

Our presentation for the evening's Open House will be Modern Amateur Radio.

We'll have an overview of some of the latest technologies and topics for digital radio - things like higher power drone control, Internet inter-connection, mesh networks, PC interfaces, satellite communication and open source/DIY technologies. There are an incredible number of new technologies and ways of getting on the air at very low cost.

We'll have info on how to get amateur radio certification

Come out for another great opportunity meet other makers, to see our maker space, and to visit the David Dunlap Observatory site.

Ylab Maker Space's bi-weekly open house events at the DDO feature a technical talk for 60-90 minutes, followed by a visit to maker space and workshop to see our facilities, our laser cutter, 3D printers and other tools, and to meet some our our members and see some of the projects we've built.

Please note: 18 year+ event. We love kids (many of us have our own), but this event is not for them. Ylab is for adults.
