Ham Radio University 2002/ARRL New York City-Long Island Section Convention

North Babylon, New York - On Sunday, January 20, 2002 at 8AM, the doors of
the Babylon Town Hall Annex on Phelps Lane will open for the third annual Ham
Radio University.  Ham Radio University 2002 is a day of education about
Amateur Radio.

This year the forums have been expanded and new forums have been added. There
will be twenty, one-hour presentations with special forums geared to the
non-ham as well as the experienced ham radio operator. The focus will be
"hands on" with many demonstrations.

Come join us at the Babylon Town Hall Annex, Phelps Lane, North Babylon, Long
Island, and learn about everything from satellite communications, low power
operating using radios as small as a tuna tin, how to put up an emergency
antenna, the latest information on advanced digital communications, finding
and fixing radio frequency interference problems to purchasing your first
station equipment or handi-talkie and a special "Ask the Experts" forum. There
will also be a Special Event Station W2V set up and operational on HF. There
will live SSTV pictures uploaded to the NLI WWW during the event.
