Idaho Ham Radio STEMfest April 27th, 2019

Click the STEMfest logo above for more information!



To all STEM-Fest participants:
This is a critical update. Please read carefully. If I do not hear from you by
Friday, March 8th, I will assume your group is no longer interested in
participating in the event and it will be removed from the sponsor list. I have
created online forms to make it as easy as possible for you to submit your
information; it will only take a few minutes of your time. If you have any
additional information about your presentation or activity that is not addressed on
the online forms please email it to me at rjm@interplus.net. If you are doing both
indoor and outdoor activities please fill out both forms.

If your group representative has already given me the information THANK YOU, you
can disregard this request. If you aren't absolutely sure I have your info or want
to update it, please give it to me again, I can't have too much information.
We are down to the wire on scheduling the classrooms and indoor common area at the
school. Photos of the inside of the school can be accessed HERE

The common area is the bottom two photos. We have been told that there is power
along the outer walls and public WiFi. We will know about tables as soon as we get
an answer from the school. Overflow from the common area can be placed in the
hallway. The common area is large enough that people with smaller swap meet items
may be able to have them indoors.
Please submit your information HERE

If your group representative has already given me the information THANK YOU, you
can disregard this request. If you aren't absolutely sure I have your info or want
to update it, please give it to me again, I can't have too much information.
We are still ironing out the rest of the logistics for the outdoor setup and should
have that to all of you soon. In the meantime I need to get the information about
what your group or club is planning on doing so I can post it on the website.
Please fill out the Outdoor Information Form HERE
NOTE: If you are setting up outdoor antennas, no anchoring in the ground is
allowed. You will need to use weights or some other means of anchoring. No tables,
power, chairs or shelters will be provided for outdoor participants. You will need
to bring whatever you need to accommodate your group.

NOTICE TO ALL PARTICIPANTS: You will need to bring all necessary power cables,
power strips, extension cords etc. with you as they will not be provided. For those
of you doing equipment or other demos, please be sure your gear is tested and
working before you arrive at the event. We want to showcase ourselves as
professionally as possible to the public and students, therefore everything must be
working properly for your demonstrations. Please make sure you have enough people
from your group to properly handle your demonstrations or displays. Things can get
hectic at these events so we suggest bringing snacks and bottled water with you in
case you don't get around to eating during the day. When you leave at the end of
the day please clean up and leave your area as you found it. Thank you for
Please email me with questions, additions or changes to your group info, or other
items: Bob NU7L rjm@interplus.net

The dates for this year’s Rally are June 20-23 with the same stage roads being used as last year (Harris Creek, Meadow Creek, Grimes Pass,
Spanish Fork) with the possibility of adding one more (Clear Creek). So we're going to need just as many Radio Operators, if not more. If you were
signed up for last years event, log in at www.rallydata.com and update your previously saved information.  If you know of other Ham Radio Operators
that would like to help out, please urge them to sign up, as well.  Any questions or concerns need to be sent directly to n7ubo@msn.com
Here's hoping to see you in the hills in June.
