Hello Everyone,

Our club, the Nashua Area Radio Club, has been working to introduce and generate interest among young people in Amateur Radio. Our club has put together a program of activities for young people and we've had quite a lot of success so far -

http://n1fd.org/youth-activities/


Our most recent project is to help young folks in our local schools to build and launch a high-altitude balloon carrying amateur radio. We thought that some of the folks here might be interested in what we are doing. You can see some articles about our project on our personal blog and on our club website -

Let us know what you think.

Best and 73,

Congratulations on this great project, Fred.  All of us need to do our part - large or small to introduce the youth to this great hobby.   Keep up the great work you and Anita are doing through your club.
