This year’s second Kidsday will be held on Saturday 15th of June.
The first Kids Day of 2019 was on Jan 15 2019.
Kids Day always runs from 1800 UTC through 2359 UTC
Twice a year, ARRL offers an event designed to promote Amateur Radio to our youth. Share the excitement with your kids or grandkids, a Scout troop, a church or the general public!
Kids Day is designed to give on-the-air experience to young people and hopefully foster interest in getting a license of their own. It is also intended to give older hams a chance to share their station and love for Amateur Radio with their children.
This event is especially created to promote Amateur Radio to youth.
This is a moment where you can share your amateur radio hobby with your family, grandkids, friends, scouts or even to the general public.
This day can be the first time for youth to experience a real radio QSO, hopefully they get interested in becoming a licensed amateur radio operator.
You could make use of this suggested exchange: Name, age, location and favourite colour. Be sure to work the same station again if an operator has changed.
To draw attention, call “CQ Kids Day.”
