Yesterday was a good day with the Pontypridd Girl Guides, setting up a station for Thinking Day on the Air. Although there weren’t many contacts with other guides, we did spend 40 minutes speaking to a group in Scotland. The guides were using some handhelds to talk to each other and use them for a Treasure Hunt…. Glyn GW0ANA, the RSGBs Regional Manager for South Wales also came along and gave the guides a lesson in Morse Code.
The guides took away some knowledge on Amateur Radio and after hearing about some Radio Amateurs that went on to do great things in engineering, we hope they too can be inspired to become the engineers of tomorrow.
Thank You to all that turned up yesterday, and Thank You to the guides for having us.
