RMHAM_logo_smallDespite 6-12 inches of unexpected snow and ice around Albuquerque and much of the Land of Enchantment the night before, the 2015 New Mexico TechFest, an ARRL-sanctioned operating specialty event hosted by Rocky Mountain Ham Radio – New Mexico, was a huge success.  60 hams from across New Mexico gathered on Saturday, February 28 for this inaugural (and annual, henceforth) technically-focused conference designed to facilitate education, demonstrations, and collaboration about relevant and emerging technical topics, techniques, and applications within amateur radio. Presentation topics included extreme low power HF communications via QRSS, circuit construction techniques, solar weather and propagation, ESD causes and mitigation techniques, simple but effective VHF gain antenna design, and software defined radio.  For more information, visit the New Mexico TechFest event page.
