Re: Ham Radio Venture Crew Ideas
- Crew 510 is still in the books, but we are in a "lull" while the
charter members of the crew have all but aged out, and we are
waiting for Crew, the 2nd Generation (11 & 12 year olds) to age-in.
The website that we list on QRZ is pretty outdated.
We are sponsored by the Hampden County Radio Association, and in our
hayday we had 11 ACTIVE kids, doing JOTAs, unit demos, contests, and
various other things.
There are 3 or 4 younger hams that have voiced an interest in
doing the "crew" thing, so we'll be back soon.
A couple of the guys still do some spot activities under the
crew guise. We do RMB at summer camp at the Moses scout reservation,
we do the CQ WW WPX contest from K1TTT's contest station in Peru, MA.
We do a demo at Webelos Woods every year at the scout camp.
The Crew President is Mike, K1KAA (ex. KB1FWN), and he and I
were on the staff of K2BSA/4 at Jambo '05. Mike has been with the
crew since he was 12, and he is now 17.
NE1C... yeah, a little arrogant, but its New England's #1 Crew.
Crew 510... well, we took 510 because 510 in roman numerals
is "DX"... we're known to the hams in the area as "Crew DX". On
our "Class A" shirt, we wear "DX" in the unit space.
