Putting on a Ham demo at a School Science Fair VE7QJD on 28/1/18
Hi--thought I would try in this forum. I am recently licensed in southern BC in the Rockies and a little appalled at the state of decay of the hobby and of the Emergency preparedness in this area. Accordingly we are attempting two things--a public demo at the area school science fair in a couple of months (I believe we have maybe one school age Ham in this entire area)
Applications for grants to upgrade all our equipment for disaster assistance.
So I thought I would see if your experience as teachers and Hams would result in suggestions as to how best to have a booth operating all day to show what we are still capable of--we have some local repeaters and many members with VHF sets and many with HF that we could setup but we need suggestions as to how to run it all day and how to involve the public (Kids--parents) to get some newcomers into this field?? What kind of things would we demonstrate. Communications have not been the greatest from here for a while but shovel we focus on SSB ? or focus on newer digital methods, we will have some CW going. All ideas welcome. Happy to give private email if needed but you can check it through QRZ JD VE7QJD
