Location: 10 William Morgan Drive, Toronto, ON

This event is in the past.

The regular monthly meeting of the Central Toronto (CenTor) Amateur Radio Club will be held on Tuesday May 7, 2013 at 19:30 EST at the Leaside Retirement Residence, 10 William Morgan Drive, Toronto, ON.

All visitors are welcome! Please note that visitor access is restricted if you have a cough, cold or flu. The meeting room is the basement level Theatre, which is located one level down from the main entrance to the left of the elevator. 

The Rasberry Pi, a small, fast, yet low cost computer, has revolutionized the world on mico computing. This wildly popular computer, which only costs $35 and can fit in the palm of your hand, has unleashed a plethora of applications and uses beyond anything the mind could imagine.

Our guest speaker, Greg Blair, VE3OBJ, will be introducing us to the facinating world of Raspberry Pi, with a pacticular emphasis on how this gizmo is inspiring hams around the world to take ham radio to places that it has never gone before. 

Greg, who is one of the CenTor ARC instructors and accredited examiners, is a mathematician by education that works extensively in signal & image processing, computer vision, computer graphics and and enjoys fooling around with micocontrollers and ARM processors.

This presentation will kick-off a series of workshops focused around the set-up and use of the Rasberry Pi, which is sure to delight the DIY hobbyists in all of us.

Driving: From Don Mills Road turn west on Overlea Blvd to the next traffic lights, then right (north) on William Morgan Dr. Park free of charge in the long, narrow lot west of the residence (you can use any non-reserved parking space). 

By TTC: The #25 Don Mills bus stops at Overlea and Wm Morgan Dr, and connects to Pape Station.

These little devices have so many practical applications. I think versatile devices small and cheap as these are the future.
