Next year, the ARRL will mark the 100th anniversary of its founding with a year long celebration including a Centennial National Convention in Hartford, where it all began. We are proud of what has been accomplished in the first century of the ARRL’s existence. What’s in store for the second?

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Is amateur radio itself ready for the next century? While I still think its cool to talk half way around the world using a box in my basement and a copper wire strung between a few trees in the backyard …. I find few others that do. In the 70s the killer app was “auto patch” then came cellphones …. In the 80s “packet radio” and promises of a long distance radio based “network” had some steam till the internet took off …. What’s the killer app for the future???
