Electronic Homebrewers Club was formed in 1983 by Jack Bell, Harold
Boston, Bill Latta and Darrell Darby. At that time, it was known
simply as "The Louisville Homebrewers." The name was changed
later when it became apparent that there was another organization in
the area with the same name that was involved in making beer! The
club started out as a monthly meeting at their homes where each could
talk about their projects and share ideas. Since then, the club
has grown to include over thirty full-time members with new visitors
showing up each month. We now meet at 7:00 PM on the fourth
Monday of each
month at the McMahan Fire District station on Taylorsville road in
Most of the members have an extensive background in electronics, many of which have engineering degrees. Even though the theme of the club is homebrew, and it has it's share of geeks and nerds, it is also a very friendly social organization where you can meet some really nice folks and talk about any topic if you want.
One of the fun activities is the latest on-going build contest. An idea for a project is chosen then Mike Moraghan writes up the rules with a scenario then we set a deadline and start building. There are no prizes, we just compete for bragging rights. The results are sometimes amazing.
We will show some of the past and present contest entries along with some of the member's other projects.
Also, take a look at some of the swap meets and other clubs we have visited.
