N4SMS is the club call of Schofield Middle School Radio Club in Aiken, SC. Club equipment was made possible through a grant from Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS). The club got its' start through the efforts of Schofields' then Guidance Counselor, Mr. John Felak. The club is sponsored by the North Augusta Belvedere Radio Club (K4NAB). A complete selection of books was purchased from ARRL and donated to the school Media Center for checkout by future HAMS.
Club meetings are held on Thursdays from 3:30 - 4:30 PM. The students are exposed to amateur radio through Echolink contacts, local 2 Meter QSOs and through HF whereever the band propagation takes us. We have also invited the German language class into the shack for Echolink QSOs with DL4LAM, Peter Maennel, who very graciously spends time with the German language students. Phoenetic alphabet and Morse code are also being taught. Current Elmers for the club are Mike Newland NC8N, Greg Godsey K5CVD and Kent Hufford KQ4KK. The club advisor is Mr. Tray Nelson. KK4FCI
Please QSL to the school. Thanks and 73s. The students are very excited when their individual QSL cards show up.The club recently participatedd in the School Club Rou8ndup and had over 330 contacts and earned around 65000 points. This ws a large increase over their last SCR.
