Megan McClellan, K5MEM, will spearhead the project from the Youth Booth starting Friday morning and continuing during show hours on Saturday and Sunday.    The objective is to give the young future hams an opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of talking with someone in a far-away place, using the magic of Amateur Radio.  The participants in the Youth area will have access to handheld radios and a DVAP, and will operate under the supervision of an experienced Control Operator.   To participate and help show the wonders of Amateur Radio, connect your DVDongle, DVAP, Hot Spot, or D-STAR Gateway to REF033B during event hours Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  If nobody is talking, give them a call - somebody has to call CQ!
