It is time for the semi-annual ARRL Kids Day event (January 4, 2015). Kids Day is designed to promote Amateur Radio to our youth and presents a wonderful opportunity for hams to share the magic of radio with their kids or grandchildren, a Scout troop, or a church youth group.
Amateur radio is fun for kids
Kids Day gives youth an on-the-air experience and may even foster on-going interest and becoming licensed. It also gives adult hams a chance to share their station and love for Amateur Radio with their children.
We radio amateurs to listen for those Kids Day participants and answer their calls and be extra patient and encouraging.
