Hi Everyone,

I go by bk, originally from Philadelphia, now a Technology teacher in Northern New Jersey. I've been in my current position for the last 4 years and this past year was finally able to really implement some radio curriculum now that we were back in person. We made some morse keys, learned about and made some diy crystal radio receivers, and at the end of the unit we even milled our own PCBs and soldered up some rough crystal receivers! 

I'm currently finishing up my time at the Teachers Institute 1 and will bring back a lot of things(better electronics demos, fox hunting, etc) to my classroom and radio unit. I got my Technicians in 2019, but only used it the first time doing some POTA with other TI's this week, and I just past my General yesterday. I am excited to now build a kit of my own! 

Looking to share/build resources and continue learning, I am probably going to be doing TI2 as soon as I can swing it.

73,
KD2RGZ

I have those plans, and those will serve as starting points for where we want to go. Some of them may need some updating, etc. We are certainly not trying to recreate the wheel, but want to add to them as a means to make it easier for teachers to incorporate radio in their classrooms. I'm sending you an email to discuss further. Thank you for everything you have done for amateur radio!

Folks –

I would like to ask a favor; I have written lesson plans before but always felt they could have been better ---so I would like to learn how to write powerful plans for electronics and radio. Please share your ideas and process to write lesson plans.

 

Appreciate it

Steve,
About 20 years ago the ARRL flew me and five other individuals to headquarters to write the curriculum for the big project. Have you reviewed that material? I think it would be useful for what you’re looking for.

Re: FRN's

Billy Crow
 

Thanks everyone.  I made up another letter and sent it home with the kids, explaining in detail about the FRN.  Hopefully that'll fix the problems.


Re: FRN's

Steve Goodgame K5ATA
 

Bill,

What Christopher says is exactly how I dealt with it with the Padawans.  I had a couple who said they would not fill it out because they did not want to put the ssn on the FRN form. Once I explained that they are doing it themselves so that no one else has access to the ssn, and that it is just going from one gov site/agency to another, they were okay with it. One parent came in on test day and wanted to do it in front of me, he did, no issues.

Re: FRN's

Christopher Williamson
 

The student's I've dealt with just showed up to the testing site with everything so I never thought about it. However, most if not all were students of families that had hams in them...grandparents...so it wasn't questioned. 

I do see where it could become problematic. Maybe explain to them that the FCC went to FRN to eliminate the SSN? (I think security was one of the reasons?). You are basically taking a government record (SSN) from one government agency to the other and if done correctly, no one but the government will actually see the SSN? Then you can argue the USPS and FCC are independent agencies...whatever that means...it has come up a few times (hey...I teach the G/T kids so we wind up waaaaaaay off track sometimes...)

Re: FRN's

Dear Crowb and all, 

Well, what parents say is the rule to me.  

So I’d suggest to invite the parent(s) to one (or more!)  of your club meetings and to your Tech license study sessions.  

I would hope they will see what a great benefit their son or daughter will possess with an Amateur Radio license and an internationally unique callsign.  

Involvement is the key.  They don’t seem to understand without some most involvement.  

But that’s just my 2¢ for today.  

Cheers, 

Pat
