KB2EA? Harvey?

Really?

He's from the KCRA. I think I did the last VE session with him. I have to check but I think he signed my CSCE in 2001.

That club is really nice. Only thing is I wish they were closer. They will really elmer you in good old fashioned Brooklyn style.

Anyway back to the topic, has anyone here been elmered by teachers at their school? I got into the hobby thanks to one of my HS teachers - Mr. Anthony Lee-Mack, 9Y4AL. He was my English teacher (Language and Literature). We still keep in touch and I am currently helping him with getting some ham radio projects at the school started.

In response to Bruce, The club presidents article in the emitter:

I think that having a single "Elmer" in the club for an individual new ham, Is not a really big deal. I have no "Elmer" What I have is peers, willing to teach me how to do things and help me out every now and then. This is all that is needed. And it provides a wide variety of knowledge, As instead of just "Bob" helping me out. The whole community of hams is!
Without the help of alot of the hams in the edmonton region I would not be where i am today, Infact if it werent for the club, Perry, and others I wouldnt be a ham! I have been helped along so much. The environment we have now may not be very youth oriented, But it does have the bright sides.


So I disagree with what bruce is calling for, Which is a new program for mentoring newe amateur radio operators. What new hams need in the form of guidence is already there. What some new hams need is a direction to go, And some equipment to get them where they want to be.


In the article the idea of the plug and play era of amateur radio was thrown around. Really the bigger issue is specialization. There are so many different aspects of the hobby, there is no one person to turn to for really really good advice on everything! So if it is decided that a mentorship program is a good idea, The criteria for it must be thrown out there first.
What kind of mentorship are we talking? will the New ham be limited to one mentor? These are just a few of the questions that arose from the article on page two of the emitter.

And in the article it was said that narc would be soon experimenting with Pactor, Why dont we just finish the projects we started??
what happened to the ATV repeater??

To be interested in the program, we have to have a basic structure,
But in my opinion it is not needed. we have what we need. Just going to a club activity supply's a wealth of knowledge. and as for the rest, I have learned by watching, David VE6BRV has been fundamental in the operation of my station, and alot of the stuff I learned on the job. I will be able to put to valuable use. VE6SRV, I would not have half the station I have now if you didnt take time outta your day to drop by? V01PRP I wouldnt have gotten my ticket if you hadn't shown up! It is no one person, the only mentorship we need is good role models and kind gestures.

Anyway thats my 0.002 cents, not dollars!!!
