Camp is free for ages 6 – 10. The camp will investigate the differences between broadcast radio and hobby radio and the differences between broadcasting and two-way communications. Learn about radios in aviation. We will also learn the phonetic alphabet and how it is used to communicate clearly. Explore how the phonetic alphabet is used in aviation. Learn how radio waves travel locally and around the world. Spots are limited and on-line pre-registration is required. Registration begins 2 weeks prior to camp date.
