I am new to HF and would like to get my nephew and niece on the air during Kids Day on 1/6/08 if it is popular.

Is this event well supported like JOTA?

I don't pay much attention to Jota but I have worked stations on kid's day.  The kids give me a bad time because my favorite color is gray.  "Gray?? That's not a color!"  Hey, it's my color, not their's!  I have a gray Toyota 4-Runner, a gray BMW R1100R Roadster, and a blue and gray and white Mooney.  Tell me gray's not a color!

Anyway, if I haven't spoiled it for you, by all means, go for it!

    Grey is a proud color of the CSA.  You will be more than welcome in Dixieland!

C'mon, their KIDS.

My grandson once asked me what life was like "before there was color".  

See, from the little he's seen of B&W movies, plus I guess overhearing that Color TV was invented sometime before he was around, he figured that at one time we couldn't see in color until such time as it was invented.  

And to him, "Gray" means monochrome video.  

When I said, "Black and White" -- he corrected me.  

I had to say, "Well, we just used to call it that, but you are right, it was really gray, I guess."

Kids still say the darndest things.

Heh.  Find a newspaper that has half-tone B&W photographs, hand him a magnifying glass, and ask him whether it's gray or black & white. ;-)
