The Spirit of “Kids Day”

John Murphy, KB1PHN with nephew DannieThe spirit of Kids Day is alive and well in Hanson, MA where John Murphy, KB1PHN operated Kids Day from his ham shack on January 4, 2009 with his 10-year-old nephew, Daniel Murphy.

According to John, Danny “checked for a clear frequency on 20 meters, then called ‘CQ Kids Day.'” He was answerd by EI4GYB from Ireland. “Danny the SWL was hooked after that,” reports KB1PHN. “He made a total of fifteen contacts in one hour before his voice gave out.”

Murphy added, “Danny can’t wait to get back on the air.”
