Kids Day is Sunday, June 21! (Don’t be fooled — the incorrect date appears in the “ARRL Amateur Radio Calendar.”) Sponsored by the ARRL and The Boring (Oregon) Amateur Radio Club, Kids Day is a fantastic way to introduce young people to the magic of Amateur Radio by getting them on the air! Kids Day this month just happens to share the same date as Father’s Day. Participating with your child or grandchild would be a fabulous way to celebrate the special bond between generations.
