KJ4EZQ and Doyle W4DJG were on site at “Kid’s Ink” in
a 2 meter station set up to allow children to talk via Amateur Radio. We were assisted in the field by John KE4PCF, Mike KF4HPU and Michael K9VR. All together, we had about 30 kids between the age of 5 and 10 to make contact and share a few comments on the radio. The children were excited to have this opportunity. We, in turn, were excited to share our hobby for a few minutes with the youngsters.
group operated for about 4 hours. The look on the kid’s faces made the trip
child received a certificate along with our blessings of “bragging
rights” for their accomplishment.
will never know what seed may have been planted that may someday grow into the
of a new idea in our ever changing hobby we call “amateur radio”. A
good time was had by all.
thanks to all those who participated and helped make our day a success.
