The Gwinnett Amateur Radio Society (GARS), and The Gwinnett Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES), will be hosting our annual TechFest in January. In recent years we have invited regional radio groups to participate by setting up a table with information about their activities and to demonstrate some type of amateur radio mode, method, technology or experience. This will be an opportunity for the community to become aware of the many modes of operation of Radio Amateurs and view some of the preparations taking place by public service volunteers in the Ham radio community. Unlike Field day, or the typical swap meet, this is not a contest or race. It is a chance to experience modes of our hobby that you might have never seen. Or to show your friends and family what Amateur Radio is about.
2012, our 15th annual, was a blockbuster year for TechFest. We were in a great facility and had 22 exhibits, four forums, 19 new hams through the VE Testing and a great free lunch.
We want to thank all the exhibitors and guests for great participation over the past 15 years.
