sticky Re: Welcome: Introduce yourself!
My name is Steve Wilson, KJ6BNA, and I am currently employed (part-time) with DHS/FEMA as a HF Communications Manager. Have taught ARRL Education classes at a college in Northern California for 9 years and taught a class for emergency radio operators in Puerto Rico a couple of years ago.
You won't be able to hear me on the radio, my interest is experimenting and building radio networks. Spent 10 years building a series of radio networks for a power company telemetry and for their Land Mobile Radio network covering hundreds of square miles in a very remote area.
At one time in my career I work on the communications for the last Apollo Space Mission.
Goals are to learn to use Arduino to teach radio electronics – hope ARRL will offer a hands on in the future. The best experience I had was when I attended three of the ARRL Teachers Institute on Wireless Technology with Mark.

Welcome everyone to our new ARRL Education and Learning group! This group was created for you as a place to share ideas, ask questions, and discuss best practices regarding ways to implement amateur radio and wireless technology into classrooms. To help create a sense of community, lets use this thread as an introduction thread. I'll start.
