Diana Eng joining the ARRL Public Relations Committee

This is a great news – Diana Eng is joining the ARRL Public Relations Committee… She writes –

I have just been asked to join the ARRL Public Relations Committee. I am very excited to join because I want to help connect the maker/hacker community to the ham community. It’s an exciting time because there is a huge growth in the maker/hacker community. It’s hip to tinker. Ham radio operators were the original makers and hackers. And I feel like makers and hackers could learn a lot from an organization where members are building their own portable devices that can send messages or remote control other devices around the world and through outer space.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Go Diana!

    While my antenna wasn’t as large, with a smaller antenna I was able to talk to someone up in Portland, OR while on a mountain top on the southern border, and all on only 100mW on 2 meters.

    In fact Amateur Radio was where I got started in electronics. It provided the basics for learning everything else.

  2. Save a place in your logbook for me : ))

  3. Very Cool. I just passed my Tech & General in December, and my Extra in January. After working with unix, tcp/ip, open source, since the early 80’s, it feels to me like the ARRL could use some “updating”.

    Also I been wondering if there was an ham crossover in ada land.

  4. That’s some serious wood she’s got there.
    And I find it curiously and confusingly arousing.

    In my bible, hams are believed to be the original shoot that sprouted off the main nerdal branch of the species. Bless ’em.
