AD6PT   CA   School Club - Elementary/Primary
The student at Parkridge Elementary in Corona California had an amazing experience participating in February's School Club Roundup using our school call sign AD6PT. We had a total of nine operators; eight sixth-graders and one fourth-grader. We had visitors from our district office and our school board. The kids were saddened when we had to officially close down the station on Friday. The biggest highlight came a week later when AD6PT received its first QSL card! The operator during the QSO was thanked by name and got to take the QSL card home (after pictures, of course).
K4RFT   TN   Non-School Club
I had so much fun! Great band conditions! I am 15 yrs old. Can't wait to operate next time! I really liked operating under the club callsign. We are a club that serves West Tennessee, West Kentucky and Southeastern Missouri.
KA5LMS   AR   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
This was our second contest in the first year of our club. Several of our students came in during their lunch time to operate the station and make contacts. Our first two contests have generated enough interest that several of our students are now interested in getting the Technician license and we will be starting a class soon.
KE0ZNV   CO   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
this was extremely fun to run. had a great time, it nice see all the new school on the air.
KJ7YOZ   ID   School Club - Senior High
Included are a couple pictures of our antenna setup and students working the radio. We used 2, 8 foot ladders with 20 foot painter poles as the antenna mast. We raised our student made 10 meter center fed dipole which tuned on both 10 and 20 meters. We setup the antenna each morning and took it down each evening after school. We used a 20 Meter slopper antenna off the same mast when it was working, and a separate 2 meter antenna the kids made for local contacts when the bands closed down on us.

The radio shack picture taken is of two members of our newly created amateur radio club. The one in the foreground won the schools most QSO contest. The student behind him has his technician license and will probably test for general soon. One of our amazing Elmers is in the background, KE4EW; he helped setup up the antenna each morning.

The room is the high school conference room which was loaned to the club for the week of School Club Roundup, and the feed line for the antenna was fished out the window and raised above the door with old volley ball net masts. Our new slogan might just be, “Whatever works!”

Overall, we had a great time, and this "contest" was a great way to generate interest in amateur radio.

We also had no idea how to run the computer program. I set it up turned it on and walked out of the room hours before the radio was in use and we never logged it off while students were not using the radio, so it looks like our hours are probably off or out of the 6 hour window. Hopefully, some grace can happen here. Sorry.

KM7SC   NV   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
We are in the first year of offering an amateur radio class as an elective. This was our first contest. We also made our first DX contact in this contest by reaching Japan on 10 meters!
KQ4KMS   GA   School Club - Elementary/Primary
Kittredge Magnet School is located in Atlanta, GA and serves students in grades 4-6. Our school radio station is in a classroom under the care of the 5th grade science teacher, W5FRM. For the School Club Roundup week, the entire school body rotated through the station so all of the students got a chance to experience the fun of amateur radio. We had a great time!

N4SMS   SC   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
Our club is in a public middle school in downtown Aiken SC. During the previous 2.5 years, the school club has not been active due to COVID. That left us starting with new 7th and 8th grade students with no HAM radio experience. We now have six 7th grade students. They all are very sharp and picked up SCR very quickly.

One of our students, Carleigh worked her grandfather and telling him she wanted a QSL card. The next day he delivered her very first QSL card. Like many during this roundup, our school district declared Friday as a no school day, so we only operated after school for 4 days instead of the usual 5.
W1KBN   MA   School Club - College/University
W1KBN is back and contesting with some newly licensed Hams! Garrett KC1QYH, Jonah KF0INO, and Sergi KC1SKK all took shifts for this Spring SCR and expect to be taking part in more contests to come so be on the lookout!

73s from all at W1KBN
W2CXN   NY   School Club - Senior High
This was our best score in at least nine years. It was great to have both experienced seniors and inexperienced 9th-11th graders operating each day.

On Friday afternoon, Dan (KD2ZEN) ran such a pile up, it was difficult to keep up with the logging.
W6HHS   CA   School Club - Senior High
We are just learning about JS8 so that was new to use this contest. Had difficult getting through some pileups on 20 meters phone but we had more QSOs and more school clubs contacted compared to Oct. 2022. Can't wait for October '23!
W7PV   AZ   Individual
