Field Day–Youth Element

A highlight of Field Day 2013 was the Youth Element.

For perhaps the first time, we were able to claim bonus points for operators under the age of 18 who made at least one contact.

Shown here are Hans VE7OHR with grandson Dallas Rooy aged 9 and Bill VE7KDK with grandson Mason Anderson aged 11 who were both solid performers on 20 metres, selecting the station, determining whether we had made a previous contact, and then calling out to establish contact and then give our report 2A Bravo Charlie.

We hope that these young operators can encourage others to catch the feeling of success which comes from making long-distance contacts on the air.
