The CEMARC Group has concluded arrangements for the start of a YOUTH NET.
The YOUTH NET will air starting Sunday, November 10th at 7:00pm. This net will be a directed net, with a Teen Net Control Operater, strictly for youth\’s up to Grade 12. Subject matter will be at the descreation of the net attendee\’s. All young operators are welcome.
NO ADULTS WILL BE ALLOWED *
The Minute Man Repeater Association, through Kevin Paetzold, k1kwp, has graciuosly made available their linked system to air this net, and will have control operator\’s monitoring. In addition, Ann Weldon, ka1pon, a mother, grandmother, Club President, and school teacher, has agreed to act as a mentor and help to coordinate this net.
What can you and I do? First, talk up the net start. Then, advise all youth that you are aware of to try connecting to one or more of the MMRA repeaters before the net start, to see which repeater is best for them from their QTH. Help them decide if you can. Check MMRA web site for list of repeaters. <http://www.MMRA.org>
The future of amateur radio, and our clubs depends on the young operaters. Their future in continuing in the hobby depends on us. Let\’s not fail them, our ourselves.
(*) While no adults will be recognised during the Net, parents who desire to sign on their child, under their control, using their call, may do so. However, once the Net starts, no adults will be recognised, only the child who was checked in.
