ARRL Discovery Station
Friday and Saturday - Exhibit Hall (ARRL exhibit area)
Visit the ARRL Discovery Station booth to enjoy hands-on exhibits to help visitors to understand the basics of radio waves, and projects that young people can explore in the exciting world of Amateur Radio. Discover the different parts of what makes up a radio wave, try out some of the electronic kits available through the ARRL Education & Technology Program, and get inspired to create something of your own. Check out robots, a CubeSat (satellite) simulator, and an audio-frequency oscillator with an oscilloscope display and speakers — to help visitors understand the relationship between amplitude and frequency. If radio technology and electronics interests you...or if you're just getting started in ham radio...you'll want to start here at ARRL Discovery Station!
