Does your school have and use an HF or VHF Station K9CPO on 25/9/14
I have an IC706 from the ARRL grant. Unfortunately, there is much electrical noise around my school so HF radio contacts are not possible. However, my students connect with other local high school students via 2m repeaters. We make antennas, simulate emergency communications between schools, and do fox hunts with the local club. I teach physics and integrate the Technician licence material into my class. All of my students pass the mock Technician exam and seem to enjoy the physics unit. Unfortunately, none of my students want to take the actual Technician exam in a VE session. They are content with their cellular telephones.

Next year we move to a new school building. I'm optimistic the new facility will allow better HF communications. The world geography teacher and I have planned some joint lessons.
