Kid's Day - January 2nd, 2021


We made the club's 2-Meter Repeater available for Sacramento area amateurs participating in the ARRL sponsored "Kid's Day" event on January 5th, 2019. 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 2nd, 2021.

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".

Suggested Frequencies:

  • 10 Meters: 28.350 to 28.400 MHz
  • 12 Meters: 24.960 to 24.980 MHz
  • 15 Meters: 21.360 to 21.400 MHz

Awards: All participants are eligible to receive a colorful certificate (it becomes the child's personalized sales brochure on ham radio). Check the ARRL website for the lastest awards procedures.
