    Where are the "youth"? ARRL has had some MOU and instruction/instructors that worked with a youth program it sure would be great to hear about that.

    Carole's programs are hardly about Carole... these young people give presentations not only at Hamvention but at Radio Club of America; IWCE; and at many other telecom and ham venues.

    The reason we hear about WB2MGP's programs is because they have been on for 30+ years; are extremely successful for the young people; and are downright fun.

    The young people are stellar! Carole gives them a noodge (in a pleasant way) and a voice.

    You should ask Gordo, WB6NOA about Carole's programs. Get ready for superlatives:)

    Hope that helps.

    I am not knocking Carole at all - just the photos showing the youth program but no youths to be seen. Plug a program - use a youth to plug it, it may be more helpful to a young prospective to draw them in..

    Well, Here's one last year at Hamvention---Marty KC1CWF-- who gave a great talk on his experimenting.

    If you haven't heard, or heard about Marty, chances are you've been living under a rock:)

    There's more cool youth talks next month. Come and enjoy:)! For most, its the highlight of Hamvention! :)

    So put him on the front cover.. and btw I know Marty personally - so what, get with the thought.. if you are going to talk about youth display youth. Seems like all you want to do not understand the comment and slant in another direction. If you want to attract youth, display youth in action. Marty would have been a great chance to attract others his age group with a QRZ advert. There is no doubt we all have expertise in amateur radio but if we want youth - use youthful advertising.
    Sorry if you can not grasp that thought, but it works.

    Front cover of...what?


    I am afraid I do not 'get with the thought'.

    Kindly explain it, as either I am profoundly dense, or you have not ARTICULATED it sufficiently.

    This is personally important to me, as I have donated many thousands of dollars towards youth in ham radio, as have many of my friends, and would like very much to know what the point, or points are, that I am missing. So, again, please expand. Have I wasted my money?

    What have I, and others, missed?

    What is the "thought" you refer to?

    I think I am getting the disconnect here. This episode isn't about youth. It's about Carole's Youth Forum and Instructors Forum. We did a show on recruiting youth. We did a show about Youngsters on the Air. We did a show with Marty. We did 2 shows on YHOTY, and 2 others with a YHOTY. And on those episodes, I posted pictures of them. The theme for tonight isn't recruiting youth (although I'm sure it will come up!). It's about the forum that's about recruiting youth. Thus, the picture of Carole and the picture of Carole at a forum with youth in the background for the news article here on about tonight's episode. And chose the picture of Carole alone for the headline on their front page.

    BTW ICOM generously sponsors the video taping and streaming of ALL these youth presenters. The emphasis is on the YOUTHS not the MENTOR.

    Neil is reminding us that there is a great opportunity for the YOUTHS to show us a thing or two at the Hamvention YOUTH FORUM.

    We understand that with Carole heading it, we are always going to see YOUTH UP FRONT--and SHINING:)

    Come one; come all:) CU at Hamvention!
