In July I’m giving a 45 minute talk on amateur radio to a local neighborhood group that restored and maintains an old historic schoolhouse down the road from my QTH. I plan on bringing my FT-897 and throwing a dipole up in the yard so I can tune around the bands and maybe even whip up a phone QSO. (It sure would be nice if 20 was open to Europe.) I’m going to avoid “death by PowerPoint” and just work off of some simple bulletpoints.
So, any suggestions on what to talk about? What would you definitely not talk about? Any tips from seasoned speakers on things to wow the audience with?
