Summer Amateur (Ham) Radio Camp

By Daniel Schoenholtz, cabin 7

In HAM Radio we talk on short-wave radios with other radio operators from all over the world. We are learning the Morse code and how radio signals bounce of the ionosphere. There are eight transceivers in the HAM radio room. Four operate on the shortwave frequencies and the other four are on the VHF and UHF radio bands. We use a computer that will automatically print the Morse code and will also tell us how well we are sending the code. The computer will also show pictures that hams send to each other. There are a lot of programs on the Internet that Hams use. Tom Gibson, the Amateur Radio counselor likes EchoLink, a program that lets us communicate over other radio repeaters from all over the world using the Internet. Our call sign is WB3DGR, the Camp Shohola Amateur Radio Club. Search for WB3DGR, our web site on the Internet and see if you can copy the morse code message.
