R-MA Amateur Radio Club to Participate in Winter School Club Roundup
The Randolph-Macon Academy amateur radio club will be participating in the Winter School Club Roundup being held February 11-15, 2019. School Club Roundup is an amateur radio event for clubs and individuals, especially those that are associated with elementary, middle, junior high, or high schools, or colleges. The objective is to give young people experience with on-air activity in a contest-like format by exchanging QSO information with any amateur radio stations. Each school club will be on-air during the week in the way that best fits their schedule, with the stipulation that they may not be on-air for more than six hours at a time or more than 24 hours during the week. Non-school clubs and individuals are also encouraged to participate in the event. To learn how you can participate, visit http://www.arrl.org/school-club-roundup. To learn more about R-MA's involvement and how you can join in the fun, contact MSgt Stephen Pederson, USAF, Retired, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
