Amateur Radio Supplies Announces Winner of Its “Promote Youth in Amateur Radio” Contest
Wisconsin Youth Wins Complete High Frequency (HF) Station in First Giveaway by Amateur Radio Supplies
Haverhill, MA (I-Newswire) February 4, 2013 - Amateur Radio Supplies of Haverhill, Mass., today announced the winner of its biannual giveaway to promote youth in amateur radio DXing and contesting.
“After receiving and evaluation hundreds of entries, we’d like to congratulate our winner, Adam Donaldson, callsign KC9VIV, of Weston, Wisconsin,” said Jeff Demers, owner, Amateur Radio Supplies. “Adam was selected as the winner after being nominated by his scoutmaster, Roger Branton, who describes Adam as, ‘an Eagle Scout, an A student, a cross-country distance runner and an all-around great teen’.”
Adam has been interested in electronics since he was 10. At age 15, he discovered amateur radio while visiting his grandparents, who are missionaries in southern Mexico and are both HAM operators. While visiting them, he helped set up a tower and antenna system and begin his first works as a HAM. Adam then passed his technician's license test and became involved in the local HAM club, working his first Field Day this year as their youngest team member. He then passed his general test. He’s an excited and enthusiastic HAM and volunteers his time working with the Wisconsin Valley Radio Association Club. He’s currently learning Morse Code so that he can participate in the Rookie Roundup in December. He has a 2 meter rig that he uses at home and built his own antenna system from scratch.
“It's Adam’s dream to someday be able to communicate with this grandparents over Amateur Radio airways,” said Branton. “Winning this will help him to realize this dream.”
“Because getting on HF (high frequency) in today’s economy is very challenging, especially for our youth operators, many are unable to purchase the needed equipment to get on the air,” continued Demers. “Here at Amateur Radio Supplies, we want them to experience the joy that has propelled us in this hobby for many decades. This is the first of many station sponsorships to support youth in DXing and contesting.”
Amateur Radio Supplies awarded Adam a complete HF (high frequency) station, including:
• Alinco DX-SR8T/E 160-10m All Mode Transceiver & 30 Amp PS
• LDG AT-100 Pro II Desktop Antenna Tuner
• Choice of Rugged All Band G5RV or HyGain DX-77A Vertical
• 100’ of Premium RG-213 Coax
• Vibroplex Brass Racer Iambic Paddles
• SignaLink USB Sound Card for Digital Modes
• Heil Pro Set Plus Headset
