K4PSA   SC   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
A great effort from the kids this week for only three or four hours after school. Thanks to all the schools for working us, and for all the support from the OMs we worked.
 
K4WBM   VA   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
Great conditions. Students were thoroughly engrossed in pile ups. We used a spotting program (DXSUMMIT) two days which helped us locate schools. We maintained a frequency 7.226 on the forty meter which really helped.
 
K5LBJ   TX   School Club - Senior High
Band conditions continue to go south, but it gave K5LBJ an opportunity
to try 3 different modes (Phone, CW, Digital). The variety added to
the fun. We worked AK & HI, but not RI, CT, or VT. HF is weird.
Great to see more schools each year. Tnx for another great SCR.

Almost all of the students were new to PSK-31 and thoroughly enjoyed the contest! This was a great warm-up exercise for the ARRL Field day.

I am new to submitting a log. If any comments please email me. Thanks!!
 
KD8NOM   OH   School Club - Elementary/Primary
With missing Monday (school weather closure) our members had a LOT of catching up to do! A big rally on Tuesday continued through the week.Lots of calls and pile ups made for great ear training! Regardless of score I am super PROUD of our kids effort and skill. Special thanks to our volunteers for daily snacks and assistance ! See ya in the Fall !
 
KE6SES   CA   School Club - Senior High
Supported by three members of the Yuba-Sutter ARC. Several of the students will test March 2nd.
 
KE8FWT   OH   School Club - Senior High
Several new students introduced to Amateur Radio
 
KE9KEK   IN   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
Poor weather conditions caused us to cancel the contest for two days. Valentine's Day caused us to lose another day. We only contested for two days after school but the club had a great time. See you all in the fall.
 
KM4RE   GA   School Club - Elementary/Primary
As always this has been a great experience. Our students spend several days after school in the weeks before the event to plan strategies. It is always very satisfying to then see them implement and adjust their plans according to conditions, etc. This even embodies the processes that should drive effective STEM education.
 
KN4BBD   AL   School Club - Senior High
Pinson Valley High School Amateur Radio Club participated in the February 2019 SCR with a combination of 45 students, one parent, and two teachers rotating through the school’s station during the week. Many students who had never been exposed to the amateur radio service were able to quickly learn to make contacts and a few even worked small pile ups.

“At the beginning of the School Club Roundup we set up the log, reviewed how to tune the radio, and get the whole system set up. We started giving our call sign and the traffic would vary often from overcrowded calls to the silence of nothing while talking to the static of the radio. The experience of hearing someone give their call or repeat yours is indescribably satisfying to hear. It was very exciting to make contacts especially DX contact. The overall experience is great and is even more fun because you are competing against other schools. I especially enjoyed showing other students how to operate the radio and make a contact.” Seth

“Participating in the contest (SCR) was so much fun. I had never talked on a radio before and really didn't know anything about it until we visited the radio room. I thought it was very cool to talk to people all over the country on the radio. Is this what they had before cell phones?” Kayla
Last week when we got to take part in the school radio contest I learned about a new technology.

“I thought it was amazing that you can talk to people through radio waves. When Mrs. Moore explained that our cell phone is basically the same thing, I was surprised. I didn't know radios like this existed except for the police, fire, and EMTs. It was really cool. I love to talk to people so I wasn't shy after a few times.” Allison-----

We counted W5RRR as a school, although they might count as a club. My students were excited to talk with NASA in Houston.
 
N4SMS   SC   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
With 17 student operators, we were very busy.
It is real interesting to watch former students, or current experienced students act like experienced ELMERS!

Dave, WB5NHL held a Technician class during the off times for the students, the whole week!

We put up our new OCF antenna at 40ft on Tuesday, before operating. A great antenna. Thanks to the Aiken County Schools IT department bucket truck and crew.
And Donuts on Wed., Cup Cakes on Thursday, PIZZA on Friday. Even had a school dance on Friday, just down the hall from the radio shack!


Thanks to all the Elmers that put in over 29 hours each, supporting the school club. It was well worth it. ALL the students got a good bit of mic. time, and a time of their lives talking to places they may never see. YOU want YOUTH in ham radio, YOU have to grow them one at a time..

QUOTES OF THE WEEK-
Annie, one of our smart licensed 8th graders was logging. She told the student on the mic to “Speak up and talk a little louder because you are talking to 70 year olds”.

Again, later she said, “You have to talk like you are talking to your grandmother”.

A conversation started about typewriters. One of the students said, “Yea, I know what that is, my Grandmother has one.”-----

A brief trip to test a lightweight portable DXpedition station coincided with the SCR - so it was great fun to be a DX contact for many schools and clubs while operating from a beautiful Caribbean location - TNX and 73 to all!

CW proved its mettle and helped us get to the 20 school mark. Let's just hope that we see more colleges and universities on next time.-----
Happy to see CW making a comeback in the SCR. Where were all of the Universities?

We got a last-minute request to check the contest. We do not have great antennas and we could only hear a few stations. It took about 10 to 20 minutes to be heard over the noise and fading, but it was a pleasure to have QSOs with the school clubs at Purdue and Georgia Tech. The operators were Brent VE9EX, Alex VE9LEX and Nick VE9WAM.

Another great year for the Kansas State University Amateur Radio Club!
 
W0WCS   MN   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
We had limited operating time due to the students' tight schedules, the control operator's business trip, and weather-related school closures. But the kids had fun and made a lot of contacts. 40 meters was the most productive band, generating good pile-ups. 20 was very spotty but we got a decent opening to the west coast on Friday just before shutting down. Thanks to all the individual stations that made the effort to contact us!-----

Our newly installed antennas worked very well. This was our best performance in many years. Perhaps the best since 1991. It was great to have student members operating and logging.
 
W4LMS   GA   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
W4LMS had 11 student operators this week, including 8 students who were on the air for the first time!

W8EDU   OH   School Club - College/University
Wow! What a week! Lots of newcomers, several previously unknown amateur on campus came to operate, contacted alumni, chanced across friends from decades earlier, and on and on. Thank you as always to the organizers--and to all the club operators who coached newcomers through first HF contacts.

We completed our 10th year on air and despite the another round of less than ideal conditions, each time brings new highlights for us. This year, Quentin, KD9LBO, took charge of the mic, helping
lead his fellow classmates through Q's. We worked 9G2HO for a new DX school and finally got W8LT into our log! Always great to see everyone on air and rekindle friendships. 73 from the Flatlands of Illinois! - W9GRS
