During the fall and winter, we gather on two Saturday mornings per month to build (or repair existing) amateur radio related equipment. We begin around 8AM, and spend a few hours working on, or asking questions and getting help about, our projects. (In between shooting the breeze, and drinking coffee.)
Most times the project is one of general interest to quite a few members. PC boards can be ordered, and parts assembled into kits to make the job easier. No matter what your skill level, you can learn a LOT by working on a project at these informal gatherings. Hard to find parts, tools, and helpful advice can usually be found here as well.
We’re always open to suggestions for new projects to be put into kit form, so bring your ideas to the next club meeting. If you would like to have the group help resurrect a non-functioning piece of equipment, bring it along and we will try to get it running again.
Construction Project meetings are held the second and fourth Saturday of the Winter months at Schaumburg Tennis Plus (A Schaumburg park district facility). For specific dates we meet, see the club calendar.
