School in Remote Alaskan Village Reaching Out via Ham Radio
#1
You probably have never heard of Pilot Station, Alaska, but the school in the little Yukon River Delta community 400 miles west of Anchorage offers an inspiring demonstration of how Amateur Radio can help youngsters reach out to the wider world. Donn Gallon, KL7DG, a 5th grade teacher in the Yup’ik Eskimo village of about 650, has been using ham radio as a teaching tool at Pilot Station School and as a window into what lies beyond the isolated community.
