Maker Sender 12-packPrice:
I traveled down to New York City the weekend of September 19th to help out the New York Hall of Science Amateur Radio Club at the New York Maker Fair. My mission was to put a little MAKER flair into the HoS booth. I took the basic principle of my Night Sender Key and created a scratch built version using pcb material, MeSquares pads and Super Glue. We had lots of interest and no lack of Makers trying their hands at Manhattan construction.... especially since the Radio Shack learn to solder booth was just inside the main entrance and had LONG wait lines to get a seat.
If you HAD attended the Maker Fair, you could have built a little Maker Sender for FREE but I have to now charge $$ to ship it to your QTH...SORRY!
They are cute, and the SUPER Bright LED is good for upwards to a mile on a clear night!
