I am a kid myself, I am accually going to go for my technican this may, But I understand why they dont know what we are, and what we do, I have been exposed to the radio my whole life. I tried back in 2008, I missed 13. I had lost my thing for it. What we need to do, is pretty much, to get them intrested, What I would think, is have a Public Field day, that we have advertised, and invite anyone to come. Teach them how to use a radio, its like school, but you dont have those pesky teachers!
