There are many opportunities to learn and teach about Amateur Radio.
OR ARC has
a partnership with the Childrens Museum of Oak Ridge that provides a community
outreach to children and their families. The Club sets up in the Discover
Lab on the third Sunday of every month. ORARC also sets up during the ARRL®
Kid's Day on the Air to provide an opportunity for young people to learn
more about Amateur Radio. Always check the calendar
for the schedule and times.
Slow CW with Paul and Jim
Paul, WA0BAG, Jim, KC4RD, Dave, K8BYP, are on the air nearly every evening (most nights) between 7:30 and 8:30PM communicating in Morse code on 10.130 MHz. Join them if you are learning Morse code, working to get faster or just want to join in the conversation. This is a casual activity so they might not get started on time, or not be on frequency due to other events.
