Announcing the EMF schedule like it's the 80s

A talk from EMF 2022 by Dan Nixon

On Sunday June 5, 2022 at in Stage A

A demonstration and discussion around amateur paging. This year I will be providing a pager transmitter at EMF that primarily will announce the talk/event schedule (amongst other things yet to be dreamt up over a pint).

This talk will give an overview of the specific flavour of pagers used for this system, the hardware used to build the transmitter, the amateur paging network trying to keep this relic of communication alive and some of the more interesting ways of receiving pages (e.g. turning a badge into a pager).

Of course this assume everything goes to plan and works as expected, there is a non-zero probability some parts of talk will change from "this is how this works" to "this is how this should work, but this is why it does not".
