Fridays night’s Intro to Electronics Equipment drew a dozen folks who learned the basics of how to use power supplies, multi-meters, and oscilloscopes. After the (semi-)formal presentation some of our members hooked up our keyboard/synth to a ‘scope, and checked some of our other donated test gear.


Saturday: Soldering Class
Thanks to members Matt B and Andy for running the class, and the thirteen folks who came out to make their own Tactile Metronomes. Member Chris T has an excellent write up.


Sunday: Ham Cram
Congrats to members Matt B and Friar who passed their Technician exams after studying all day in the shop! (CMU’s Radio Club held the exams, just up the street from our shop.)
