We are working on 501(C)(3) status
The picture above was taken for the yearbook after the February 2013 School Club Roundup. We had quite a crowd in the radio "closet" yet again. The club sponsor, Gene Case, KU5C, is in the picture to the left in the upper right corner; Gordon Thornton, W5GFR, is in the picture on the right -lower left corner. We broke all of our personal bests this time, scoring over 103,000 points with 42 schools, 48 states, 4 countries, and 4 Canadian Provinces.We just got our Placing back for October 2012 and February 2013 SCR -- we got 2nd place in the Middle School / Jr. category both times! We also qualified for the Gold level (30 school states) of the Worked All States School Stations award, sponsored by the Glen Raymond School Science Club (W9GRS),sponsored by Troy Simpson (W9KVR)
We just got finished with October 2013 SCR -- final score 64,818 points with 234 QSO's, 40 states, 2 provinces, 15 countries, 1 club, and 35 schools. We had about 25 students calling CQ and handling contacts.
TNX everbody who completed a QSO with us this last week!
The older gentleman in the lower right corner of the top picture is Gordon Thornton, W5GFR who stayed at the radio the better part of the whole school week the last 3 school club roundups working with students as they called "CQ" and worked pileups. He has also be instrumental in getting donations of equipment of various sorts and repairs and builds equipment for us.
Next Fall (2013) we will be moving into our own room, an old wood/metal shop. There will be enough room for new activities we are planning, and enough room to display all of our QSL cards.
Our station, which first started operations in 2005, just got back on the air 11/19/10- due to moving from our old campus to the old high school campus. It took a while to find a proper location on campus.
Below are pictures of students working on Board of Education (BOE) Bots:
We are also happy to announce that we are offering a free ht to the first four Lampasas students who earn their Technician's Class License, thanks to a very generous donation from an area ham who has gone SK. He will be missed by all.
we can be found on psk31 on 20m (14.070) and just about anywhere else on SSB.
We qsl through mail and Eqsl.
**We haven't paid for the QRZ logbook feature yet, but we plan to.**
