Bixby Library to host new computer club

VERGENNES — The exceedingly fresh and new Bixby Library Computer Club in Vergennes will present “Exploring the Magic of Digital Radios” at its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 4. The club has invited UTC electrical engineer Scott Fusare to present the history of hardware radios. The presentation will be held in the library’s Community from 3:30-5:30 p.m. A group hacking of Scott’s software-defined radio will follow the presentation.
Anyone 10 or older is welcome to join the club or to attend the first meeting to express their interest. Fusare’s talk will explore how wireless technology works. Radios power all the wireless devices that infiltrate daily life, including cell phones, WiFi, GPS, 3G, and Bluetooth.
The club, guided by software engineers Jon Sullivan and Randy Page, will meet regularly to explore topics related to technology and computers. Both Sullivan and Page are members of the library’s IT Committee and have driven the organization of the computer club. They say they have an exciting list of projects to work on with the club for the near future and are looking forward to working with a diverse group of club members.
Any level of experience is welcome. To join the club’s Google group, go to groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/bixbycomputerclub. Contact the club by phone at 802-877-2211 or email [email protected].
