Kids' Day is an event designed to promote Amateur Radio to our youth. Share the excitement with your kids or grandkids, a Scout troop, or the general public.
Kids' Day is an on-air event to encourage young people (licensed or not) to have fun with Amateur Radio. It is designed to give on-the-air experience to youngsters and hopefully foster interest in getting a license of their own. It is also intended to give older hams a chance to share their station and love for Amateur Radio with their children.
If you've never operated on Kids' Day, you are missing something delightful. Open up your shack to a family member or invite the neighbor kids over - watch for the looks of surprise and delight as they make a contact or two. If you don't have a kid of your own, get on and be the station that creates those happy moments. You won't regret it!
