- Dec 2, 2005Hey everyone,
Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Dan, AB8VE.
I am currently a student at the Ohio State University, and the
President of the OSU Amateur Radio Club. I am also an Eagle Scout.
I have concerned lately as to the lack of knowledge of amateur radio
to the general public. I have tried on campus to get people
interested in the hobby, and had some luck but not a whole lot. I
have come to the conclusion that in order to get people interested
the best way is to hook them while they're young. Then I got to
thinking. I learned about ham radio for the first time through the
Boy Scouts. What a great place to go to get new members. Now, my
little brother is still in the Scouts, and have gone camping with
his troop several times. I always brings my radios along and all
the kids are really intersted in it and some have gotten their
license. But the kids don't have the money to get a radio a lot of
the times and quickly lose interest. So I found this group in hopes
that I could get some ideas on how to hook em while they're young
and keep em.
