This year the QC Co-Lab will be participating in Amateur Radio Field Day from Saturday, June 22nd at 12:00 PM through Sunday, June 23rd at 12:00 PM. Ham Shacks were some of the original hackerspaces, so it only seems fitting to have one here.

Field Day for us kicks off at noon and hopefully runs for 24 hours. Amateur Radio operators all over the world will be getting together to make contacts, practice emergency protocols, and generally promote the hobby. If you have ever been interested in Amateur Radio, stop by Saturday. It is an excellent time to learn more about radio communication and possibly even get on the air. We hope to have a couple stations up, and if the weather permits talk to some satellites, or even the International Space Station.

More information about Field Day is on the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) website at

We hope to see you all there!
