    Radio hams take part in Day of Science 2019

    On Sunday, November 24 radio amateurs from across Flanders in Belgium took part in the Day of Science 2019. Some made good use of the RSGB video - Amateur Radio a hobby for the 21st century

    A translation of a UBA post reads:

    The Flemish government organizes Science Day every year. This year amateurs participated in 5 places: the NBT section was a guest at the MIRA Public Observatory in Grimbergen, HAC at EnergyVille in Genk, MWV and KTK at the Vives Hogeschool in Roeselare, LVN at the KU Leuven and TLS in its own club room.

    The NBT (MIRA people's observatory, Grimbergen) reported:

    Like every year, our club again took part in the Day of Science in collaboration with the Volks observatory Mira. In total almost 300 visitors came to Grimbergen.

    In the workshop "Build your electronic dice", 18 children could gain their first experience with the soldering iron. Some really had a taste for it and came to us right from the workshop of the Leuven section. Everyone went home with a working dice and a big smile.

    The giant Tetris caught the attention of young and old. While the little one played the game, more than one parent also went to the back to find out how we made this game. Flickering lights always work!

    The station was staffed all day long and contacts were made with both OR and VHF with the OR18NBT call. On the big screen the video of the RSGB played with Dutch subtitles to show all facets of our hobby.
