School DSTAR linkup UK to USA - 07/10/2009
On the 5th October pupils at St Marys Catholic School in Deal, Kent had a contact via D-STAR with St Marys Catholic School in Temple, Texas.
The children prepared questions to ask each other, which included sports, television, class subjects and culture.
The children had presentations at both schools before the contact to learn more about amateur radio. They were very excited, and enjoyed the project.
Thanks must go to Brian G8ZYZ for helping putting together the presentation, to Catherine M1CVF for her presentation, and to Steve NU5D and all at the Temple Amateur Radio club for making this contact possible.
