Sandringham School presentation

On Monday 26th January 2016, Tony Wiltshire, M0TNY/ZB2TY – from Martin Lynch & Sons Ltd and Mark Haynes, M0DXR – from Kenwood UK visited Sandringham School in St Albans. A presentation and demonstration was made to Polly, M6POG , Emma, M6GJQ and Jessica, M6LPJ , the school s newly licenced amateurs who previously had made the initial contact with Tim Peake aboard the ISS. The girls had placed orders for Kenwood s TH-K20e vhf handies with ML&S and have been looking forward to being active on the bands with their own equipment.

We hope the demonstration will get them the air very soon and we would to also thank headmaster Alan Gray, G4DJX , for his hospitality and wish Sandringham School Radio Hams the best for the future!

Rumour has it that 15 more students from the school will be taking their licence exams as a result of the interest from the ISS contact.
