Request from a fellow ham. Please consider helping out the next generation of amateur radio operators.
Good Morning Folks, Some fresh air and coffee got me in the mood to type up an email.. Last October a few of us manned a table at the STEM Festival that is sponsored by St. Mary’s County Public Schools and is held at the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds. I guess we did a good enough job since they extended us an invite to come back again this year.
So with that said, we will be manning an Amateur Radio “demo”at the Festival this year taking place at the Fairgrounds on 27 October, 10:00 –2:00 PM. We plan on doing some fox hunting, HF, CW, and contacts on local repeaters and Echolink. This is an excellent event with a large turnout of school age kids that last year, showed a surprising amount of interest in radio and amazingly enough, CW.
If anyone has some time to support the effort, we could use the help! Even if you can only commit for an hour a two we’d be glad to have you stop by and help out. If you can assist, please shoot me an email and let me know so I have some idea of head count.
Everyone enjoy the rest of the weekend and this great weather, I guess Mother Nature finally realized it’s Fall!
