Just wanted to comment on the outstanding performance of the school clubs on 20 meters SSB a couple of days ago. I was very impressed with the quality of the operators and their on-air clarity. We should all get a good feeling that ham radio is alive and well in many schools throughout the country and kudos to the elmers who are leading the groups.

A charter school about a mile or two from my QTH has a big telescoping tower with a 3 element yagi on top. Problem is, when they key up it overloads the front end of my Kenwood. But hey, I like to see the kids learn, so I'm cool with it.  Grin In an age where many youth seem tethered to smartphones, it's nice to see kids getting involved in ham radio, which is more of an "under the hood" activity.
