Amateur radio is a technical hobby and unlike your mobile phone, with radio you never know who you are going to talk to as there are users all over the world. Our own Mr Jones is a Licenced amateur and explained to the students that he has spoken to the Ontario Science Museum in Canada and has also picked up signals from the International Space Station. Students were surprised at the vast range of the hobby, from space communication, directional radio finding to just having a chat with somebody on the other side of the world.
The students were encouraged to get their Foundation Licence, which Mr Jones said he would help them with.
