Default ARRL School Club Round-Up

We are having a school club round-up for the Schofield Middle School Radio Club in Aiken, SC, N4SMS. These middle schoolers are having the time of their life contacting the HFers out there. The round-up has been going on all week from 2pm to approximately 7pm eastern. So far they have made lots of contacts. We elmers get the rigs warmed up for the students who get there at 3:30pm (imagine that!). We have two more days this week.

If you have a spare second or two, give a listen to 20 meters, 40 meters and today we should have two HF rigs going and the second one should be on 75/80 meters. A contact would be most appreciated (especially from Hawaii and Alaska).

Above all have have patience, and most of all HAVE FUN!

Default Thank you for getting out to those young people!

I am willing to bet that you're going to get several amateurs out of that group of kids.
Thanks again for elmering them to a great hobby!
edit: will try and listen in on those HFs.
Freedom, a beautiful way of life.
