  Pirates in Space: Berea students reach for the stars with experiment
Posted by: News Man - 11-29-2017, 09:22 AM - Forum: Amateur News - No Replies

Joshua Woodward's ninth-grade honors integrated science class at Berea Community High School looks more akin to a NASA control room these days rather than a high school science lab thanks to a class project that will have the student's — literally — reaching for the stars.

According to Woodward, the class has spent the entire spring semester designing a project to launch experiments to near space (approximately 120,000 feet) using a high altitude weather balloon. The class is planning the mission, constructing the payload and launch system, running the on-board experiments, and even using the project to learn about force and motion.

  Volunteers instrumental to class’ success (Arizona)
Posted by: News Man - 11-29-2017, 02:05 AM - Forum: Amateur News - No Replies

Kudos times two! I recently attended a class (March 19 and 20) called AUXCOMM, hosted and funded by Yuma County OEM’s AZ State Homeland Security Grant Program and instructors and registration was provided by DEMA-Department of Emergency and Military Affairs.
The Yuma Auxiliary Communication Service (YACS) HAM organization was instrumental in assisting the Emergency Manager in getting this class in Yuma.

Posted by: News Man - 11-27-2017, 07:31 PM - Forum: Amateur News - No Replies

It happened Monday morning at the old Voice of America Site A in Beaufort County.

Not used since 2006, the VOA site was sold to Beaufort County as surplus U.S. property.

The letters MNOVFW might not mean anything to the average observer - but to a select group of local folk, they signify something quite vital.

Those letters are the call sign for the Mid-Ulster Amateur Radio Club (MUARC), which has just celebrated fifty years on air.

IT’S amazing what you can find on eBay - like a post card sent from Barnsley to America by your grandfather in 1939.

That’s what happened to Jane Walton when she was reminiscing about her grandfather’s passion for amateur radio.
