Not just for grown-ups!
Faye KN4WDF recently was the Virginia Fone Net Net Control Station and reported that she had talked to a newly licensed ham on another net she runs. The new ham is an 8 year old girl. Unfortunately I do not know the young lady’s call sign.
Faye is an enthusiastic supporter of the ham radio hobby. While has not been licensed very many years herself, Faye seems to be very good at drawing people into the hobby. She has expressed several times she wishes she had gotten into ham radio decades ago instead of waiting until after she retired.
How enthusiastic is Faye? She was still getting her 50 required check-ins in order to become a VFN member when she said she was willing to be a net control on Saturdays, a day when the net can get 50 or more check-ins. That’s enthusiastic!
The Virginia Fone Net meets on 3.947 MHz, at 1630 and 1930 Eastern time daily.
