    Kids Day January 4, 2020

    Chair of the IARU Region 1 Youth Working Group, Lisa Leenders PA2LS, (pictured) reports Saturday, January 4 is Kids Day


    On the IARU-R1 site she writes:

    Just in the beginning of 2020 it’s time for a new Kidsday. Kidsday is generally on the first Saturday in January and the third Saturday in June.
    This event is especially created to promote Amateur Radio to youth. This is a moment where you can share your amateur radio hobby with your family, grandkids, friends, scouts or even to the general public. This day can be the first time for youth to experience a real radio QSO, hopefully they get interested in becoming a licensed amateur radio operator.

    You could make use of this suggested exchange: Name, age, location and favourite colour. Be sure to work the same station again if an operator has changed. To draw attention, call “CQ Kids Day.”

    Suggested frequencies IARU R1:
    10 Meters: 28.350 to 28.400 MHz
    15 Meters: 21.360 to 21.400 MHz
    20 Meters: 14.270 to 14.300 MHz
    40 Meters: 7.080 to 7.120 MHz
    80 Meters: 3.650 to 3.750 MHz

    Other suggested frequencies by ARRL:
    12 Meters: 24.960 to 24.980 MHz
    17 Meters: 18.140 to 18.145 MHz
    40 Meters: 7.270 to 7.290 MHz
    80 Meters: 3.740 to 3.940 MHz

    Good initiative "Kids day", lets hope for multiple new operators and SWL listeners in the nearby future.

    Quite the typo.

    Who called her a kid? The article lists her as Chair of the IARU Region 1 Youth Working Group. Am I missing something?

    The point is she is NOT a kid, but is a very meritricious leader, and the best to PA2LS.

    My son (Adam / KI5FJE) who is 13, had a few QSOs...It was nice for him to speak with other children his age (Or even younger!). They have this event 2 twice a year...It might be advantageous to have this even more often (Like 4 X per year)...
