Steel City ARC was invited down to the Carnegie Science Center for there Adult 21+ night program on Sept 13th 2019. There was 1500 adults attending that adult only program which we had an estimated 200 of them enter our room to talk about how amateur radio is alive an well in 2019. We showed them Go Box for how ham radio helps out in emergencies along with a digital station working Europe all night long. We even had them try out an Morse code key while explaining why we still love that form of communication.

Today’s work party was very successful and a lot of future infrastructure was put in place. We placed conduit buried to the driveway for a near future camera so members can check out the drive way condition. Also conduit was run to the telephone pole to move the inverted L over to the wooden telephone pole. And finally a conduit was put in place to that empty far tower so we can put an antenna on top of it.
Thanks go out to:
Chuck, Art, Karl, Nate, Tim, Dave, Joe
