When Ham Radio Operators Go 14er Mountaineering #hamr
David Stillman has a great photoblog write-up of his experiences from the recent 25th anniversary Colorado 14er and Summits On The Air event. It’s a fun read that includes some truly beautiful vistas and landscapes – and even some cute critters spotted on the journey!
This past weekend was one of my favorite of the year – it was the annual Ham Radio 14er event. This year marked the 25th anniversary of the event, and the first year that the event has spanned the entire weekend instead of just the first Sunday in August. In combination with opening up all SOTA peaks last year, this did wonders to open the event to many more people from a lot more locations.
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.
