Sussex amateur radio groups promote STEM at Delaware Tech

April 3, 2024

Members of the Nanticoke Amateur Radio Club and the Sussex County Amateur Radio Emergency Service recently attended the ninth annual STEM expo at Delaware Technical Community College in Georgetown.

The free event allows middle and high school students to experience Delaware Tech programs through student-designed activities, build connections toward STEM careers, and have fun.

The operators provided hands-on demonstrations using amateur radio equipment. These demos provide valuable insight into radio operations, electronics and radio frequency. Students were introduced to 2-meter handheld radios using a repeater, digital voice and a Flex Maestro Control Console to provide remote access to a full high-frequency station located in Seaford.

The American Radio Relay League was represented by Steven Keller, KC3DSO, Delaware section manager, who provided handouts to encourage youth interest in amateur radio.
