HVRA at the Houston Mini Maker Faire

Message from President Bill Werzner – The November 1st Houston Mini Maker Faire was fantastic and the crowd filled the huge auditorium in the Stafford Center where it was held. I had my Walton’s Zenith playing music from a home brew transmitter, Lance (at Large II) fascinated visitors with his crystal radios (sold some too). The beautiful vacuum tube amplifiers that Mike Slovan demonstrated garnered a lot of attention from both young and old. Mike had a guitar hooked to one of his amps and people would stop to pick and listen. HVRA Historian, Gilbert Hedge showed his Zenith book and V.P. Jerry Sirkin covered all bases along with us. HVRA Secretary, Mine Monsour, was with BVARC across from us and assisted too. We look forward to participating again next year as we interacted especially well with both young and old including many students from high schools and universities. I lost count of how many club brochures and cards we passed out, but by 5 PM, my supply was down to only a few of each. In summary, a very successful day for HVRA !     Photos – Gil Hedge
