Framingham ARA To Operate In ARRL Kids Day

Framingham ARA logoSumner Weisman, W1VIV writes on FraminghamARA-L:

There has been lots of talk among [Framingham Amateur Radio Association] members about how we need to attract more young people to our radio club. Here is one way to do it.

ARRL Kid’s Day is coming Sunday afternoon, January 8th. I will be at the FARA shack, operating the rig, from 1 to 5pm. My 9-year-old grandson Tim will be there also.

Last year we did it at my QTH, but this year I would like to invite other parents and grandparents to the FARA shack, with their kids and grandkids. We will put the kids on the air, talking to other kids around the country. We hope that it will help to develop an interest in pursuing a ham license in the future. You can read more about Kid’s Day on the ARRL website.

Please e-mail or call 508-877-1565 and let me know if you are coming. If you can bring some refreshments to share, that would be great. (Cookies, brownies, soda, etc.)
