In honor of Field Day we’ve teamed up with our friends at Adafruit Industries, MAKE, and MakerBot to create some special offers for ham radio operators. While we are throwing our ham party for Field Day, our friends will be offering discounts on kits, books, tools, and other goodies. We hope that Field Day will be a great opportunity for the hacker and ham communities to get to know each other.
Adafruit Industries is like the Hendricks of the hacker community. They have fantastic kits ranging from retro Russian display tube clocks to TV-B-Gone a high power remote that can turn off TVs everywhere (like in noisy bars). Adafruit will be offering a 10% discount on their kits from June 26-27 for all licensed hams. Just enter code “HAMS” at check out and in the comments include your callsign.
MAKE Magazine is the hacker’s version of QST. MAKE Magazine has projects, profiles makers, and shows tips and tricks. MAKE is offering a 20% discount off of everything in the MakerShed including books, kits, and tools. From 6/25-6/27 enter discount code “HAMHACKER” and your callsign in the comments (one time use, not combinable, no minimum purchase).
MakerBot Industries is the first place to sell homebrew 3-D printers. And since the printers are homebrew, they are actually affordable (kind of like some of the early radios kits). MakerBot is offering a 5% discount on MakerBots. Email your callsign this weekend to firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discount code.
You can win prizes from Adafruit, Maker Shed, and MakerBot at our Ham Radio Party this Saturday June 26th from 8pm-1am.
