Whitman ARC To Demonstrate Ham Radio At Youth Fair

Whitman ARC logoThe Whitman Amateur Radio Club will host an amateur radio table and demonstration at a youth fair at the Masonic Temple, 1170 Hancock Street in Quincy, MA on April 28, 2009 from 10AM until 3PM.

The display, requested by Pete Carlson, N1POO will feature Whitman ARC members explaining amateur radio to those individuals attending the fair. “We hope to put the young adults on the air using the Whitman repeater.”

Whitman ARC members are asked to monitor the repeater and answer the children when the control operators put them on the air for a contact.

Whitman ARC member Bill Hayden, N1FRE is coordinating the event. Anyone interested in helping out should contact N1FRE at wf.hayden at verizon dot net. Set up begins at 9AM.

–Thanks, Whitman ARC Spectrum, March 2009
