Amateur Radio Club:
Home of the DX Roadrunners
We are a school club composed of motivated 4th and 5th grade students at Russell Elementary in Smyrna, Georgia. We are located about 12 miles northwest of Atlanta and are part of the Cobb County Public School System. Our club is still new, forming in November 2015.
We love to exchange QSL cards! Please send QSL cards direct. If possible, please include a SASE.

Donations to our program are gratefully accepted (but never ever expected). This can be in the form of money or equipment that is in working condition. Donated equipment may be used in our club station or as part of the student equipment loaner program that we are setting up. Contact us via email if you are able and interested in helping us out. We collect no dues so that the program can be affordable for all of our students. All of our funding comes from grants and through the generosity of others.
Check out the Russell Elementary Space Program. Many of the students in our club are also part of this program. Students in the space program train all year for a 27-hour space mission simulation.
