Thanks to Callum McCormick (M0MCX--the "DX Commander") for this enlightening and uplifting discussion on how to get young people involved with Amateur/Ham Radio. Here are some general comments from Callum: I ran training courses for ham-radio students for years - I was also Group Scout Leader for for 6-years inducting around 800 children into the world of Ham Radio. I showed them CW, PSK31, SSB, DX, Walkie Talkies, VHF, computer logging, antenna erection, field days, QSL cards and lots hands-on fun and games surrounding the amateur radio and RF world. Want to know the numbers of successful conversions I had? You need to watch this. You would be amazed! Callum. M0MCX. ----- Thanks for joining us today. Help a child or young ad
