School DSTAR Contact

On the 5th October pupils at St Marys Catholic School in Deal had a contact via DSTAR with St Marys Catholic School in Temple Texas.

The children prepared questions to ask each other, which included sports, television, class subjects and culture.

The children had presentations at both schools before the contact to learn more about amateur radio. They were very excited, and enjoyed the project.

Thanks must go to Brian G8ZYZ for helping putting together the presentation, to Catherine M1CVF for her presentation, and to Steve NU5D and all at the Temple Amateur Radio club for making this contact possible.

looking forward to the next one
