John testing the  selfie cam with Don at the Hamfest before the event opened. The popularity of this on the day  with young people seemed to show that there is an interest in technology as long as you make it relevant to them in their terms or at least  in a way they can understand and see a result.

Shropshire Linux User Group(Yeah SLUG!!) had a stand at the local Radio Rally(TDARS) on the 1st.

We had a 3D printer,QSSTV decoding images from our visitor operated “SSTV Selfie Cam” running on a Raspberry Pi and FLDIGI  busily decoding data from the attached radio. Around 1000 visitors came through the doors so we had our work cut out demonstrating and showing all things Linux to the  Radio crowd!
