We made the club's 2-Meter Repeater available for Sacramento area amateurs participating in the ARRL sponsored "Kid's Day" event on January 4th, 2012. This event was a real success with lots of activity on the repeater by both young and old. We look forward to each years event. Kid's Day is intended to encourage young people (licensed or not) to enjoy Amateur Radio. It gives young people hands-on experience so they might develop an interest in pursuing a license in the future. It is also intended to give hams a chance to share their station with children.
Date: January 7th, 2017.
Time: 1800 - 2400 Z (which is 1100 to 1700 local Sacramento time). Please leave the SARC repeater clear from 12:00 to approximately 12:30 for the daily SARC Noon Net.
Suggested Exchange: Station callsign, operator name, age, location, and favorite color. You are encouraged to work the same station again if the operator has changed. Call "CQ Kid's Day".
