Special event station N2H at hacker convention

Ed Piskor's QSL card for N2H

There has been a strong resurgence of interest in hobby electronics and general hobby construction over the last few years.  This has been due to a number of factors including: the Internet, Make magazine,hacking collectives like NY Resistor and kit suppliers like AdaFruit Industries.  It was great to read tonight on the Make Zine blog that this weekend’s  Hackers on Planet Earth (HOPE) Convention will have a special event amateur radio station, callsign N2H.

The station has a great QSL card (above) which was drawn by Ed Piskor of Wizzywig Comics.  Ed shows on his blog how he created the QSL card. I will have to try and catch N2H on the air to get one of those cards.

Great to see amateur radio involved in the hacker scene.
