Working on a handout for the Ham Radio Test Session I'll be helping with at the Maker Faire in May.  Need folks willing to put up flyers at their favorite maker space and maker hangout. Looking for people to in San Francisco and the East bay mostly.  But won't turn down help with the peninsula or south bay.

Story
Tagline
Ham Radio Guy.
Introduction
Software Engineer by profession.  Serial hobbiest by practice.

Over the years I've played with drawing, playing guitar, playing ukulele, fly fishing, fly tying, shell collecting, stamp collecting and beer making. Was good at some.  Lousy at others.  Learned from all.

I have a pretty good collection of morse code keys, slide rules and USA made schrade old timer knives.

I collect Atwood.  He is an amazing tool smith and a very good guy that appreciates his followers.

I am getting into EDC.  Are you an EDC minimalist, or a kitchen sink person?

I am currently an active Amateur Radio operator. Callsign NE6RD.

I organized a booth at the  Bay area Maker Faire to get people interested in ham radio.  2012 was be the fourth year. Hoping for an idea that will really draw people in.


Bragging rights
