Framingham ARA To Operate in ARRL Kid’s Day, Jan. 3, 2009

Framingham ARA 75th anniversary logoMembers of the Framingham Amateur Radio Association will operate in the upcoming ARRL Kid’s Day event on Saturday, January 3, 2009 in the FARA club shack from 10:00 a.m. until 12 noon.

“Bring your kids or grandkids to the FARA radio shack for Kids Day! We have done this before, and it’s good fun both for kids and for adults,” writes Sumner Weisman, W1VIV. “It’s a great way to introduce a kid to Ham Radio. We will put every kid on the air, and they will enjoy talking to other kids,” he adds.

Refreshments will be served. And a colorful certificate, suitable for framing, will be sent to every kid who operates.

Please RSVP to Sumner, W1VIV, at

  1. Kid’s Day Change

    Sumner, W1VIV writes on FraminghamARA-L:

    The ARRL has changed the date of Kids Day!  Instead of Saturday, January 3, 2009, as announced in the December QST,(p. 85)  they have changed it to Sunday, January 4, 2009.

    From the ARRL website:

    Note: Until recently, the ARRL Kids Day Web site showed an incorrect date for the January event. It is, in fact, Sunday, January 4. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

    Therefore, Kids Day at FARA will be moved from Saturday to Sunday.
