    This is great, Neil ! Thanks for highlighting this. We need more energy from current hams to get college stations and students ON THE AIR ! The outreach at Florida Hamcation was non-existent...literally crickets at the college amateur radio initiative booth....the entire weekend.

    So... if you're reading this, how can you help?

    Are you a university alumni and looking to "give back" to your school - instead of writing a check to your generic alumni organization, consider a financial (or equipment) donation directly to your school ham radio club! It doesn't take a lot.

    Maybe instead of joining the ARRL, send $49/year to your local University/College ham club! It doesn't need to be a lot -- even $10 or $15 donations add up to keep these clubs floating.

    Contact the university sponsor of the club or the club president. Clubs are in need of digital-capable equipment (SDR, Fusion, D-star, FT-8, etc are all newer modes...many clubs are using gear that dates to the 1990's or older...help them upgrade).

    Club HF radio stations are now more important than ever - with today's college hams having limited space, antenna restrictions, and cost involved to get on the air, the college ham radio club station fills an important void. Help equip your local school club station!

    The Indiana University ARC- K9IU and the Purdue University ARC-W9YB (while being long sports rivals), are looking forward to partnering on several ham events to get more activity going! INQP, Field Day, etc. Find ways to link your activities to a local college ham club.

    Be "radio active".
