I'm a teacher (KK4NWA) and just got into Ham radio a couple of months ago. I am starting a club in my school next school year and already have about 4 kids interested. I going to try to get them their techs ASAP and then start working on the Generals. A lot of these kids have science classes but no real applications for the science. The first thing I'm going to do in the club is have them bring in a transistor radio with AM and have them compete to see how far they can DX at night through logging stations. The next week I'm going to have them QSL a couple of DX stations. IF ANY OF YOU HAVE A RECOMMENDATION OF ANY OTHER CHEAP WAYS TO GET THEM TO COMPETE/PLAY WITH RADIO before they get their tech let me know. We're also going to fool around with soldering.
