IRLP and Kids
As a Father of four and waging a war against cheap toys; I have encouraged and succeeded in seeing all my kids Licensed and/or upgraded, this year alone. They chose HTs over Apples, and IRLP over PSP!
Then on top of that they formed a Kids Amateur Radio Club (WK1RK).
They have been soliciting used equipment with my help and the club is starting ok! You can read WHO donated WHAT, here:
They have messed with Echolink on the computer for about 6 months but want it by radio as well. Then they discovered IRLP. Now they want to setup both or either.
So I lose nothing by asking...
Does anyone have a retired node or radio that they would donate or discount, on the condition it was used by the kids at WK1RK. Anything at all Ham related?
I dont think that this request was out of place. These kids are looking for a ham interested in Kids setting up a permanent node dedicated to getting more kids into the hobby instead of videogames...
IF it is, then let me know and I will delete the message with apologies.
