2/27/14: We are trying to set up Robotics Competition Teams for our district's high school and 3 elementary schools, However this is expensive. If you wish to donate just click on the above button. We should have 501(c)3 status by the beginning of the next school year. All donations go to Lampasas Independent School District Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Support Club (LISD STEM Support Club), which is an independent entity from the school district. It was instituted to provide volunteer and monetary Support to STEM activities within Lampasas ISD. It currently provides support for K5LMS and the Lampasas Middle School Robotics Competition Teams. --Which is on its way to the State level of the Texas Computer Educators Association (TCEA) competition being held April 12, in Deer Park Texas.
If you are a DX station or a school or a club, or a special event station, we will send you a QSL card 100%. Please send us one in return.
Otherwise, if you want a QSL card from us, please send us one. Those with SASE will be handled first. We have been making so many QSOs during School Club Roundup this school year that we are having trouble getting cards out for every QSO.
February 2014: School Club Roundup (SCR) went Very well: 609 QSO's, all 50 states, 6 Canadian Provinces, 14 Countries, 16 clubs, and 52 schools, for a grand total of 220,458 points. So far it looks like we may have 1st place in our category!
Our new beam antenna and a borrowed amplifier helped greatly during February SCR, our first from our new Location!
And now at: http://www.k5lms.org
We are working on 501(C)(3) status

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:
