Kids Day 2016, taking place on Sunday 3rd January 2016, is a fantastic way to introduce young people to the magic of Amateur Radio by getting them on the air!
One Amateur / Ham Radio Club taking part in Kids Day is New Providence Amateur Radio Club who will set up two operating ham radio stations in the DeCorso Community Center, 15 East Fourth St., New Providence, on Sunday, 3rd January 2016. Kids of all ages from Berkeley Heights, New Providence and surrounding communities are invited to participate, and make direct radio contacts with other kids.
In the past, the club have made many radio contacts to the eastern United States, as far west as Oklahoma, Colorado and California, and to foreign countries such as Ireland and Australia. This year they expect to make many contacts with stations around the world.
