Rambler Radio Club

Hamfest Chattanooga 2019 is pleased to announce the on-site appearance of the Rambler Radio Club of Lafayette (Georgia) Middle School. This high-achieving middle school radio club will be at Hamfest Chattanooga during both days of the event.

While at Hamfest Chattanooga, W4LMS will be hosting a Youth Booth on the convention floor, hosting a Youth Forum on Saturday, assisting with a radio version of “Hide and Seek” called a “Fox Hunt”, be on-the-air making contacts from Hamfest Chattanooga in the Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club’s Mobile Command Post, and thanking all of the local “hams” who have shown us great support over the last 14 years.

Their farthest contact around the world was to Tasmania, some 9,000 miles. But their farthest contact UP was 250 miles when they hosted a live contact with the International Space Station in 2012, in front of more than 1,000 people in the LaFayette Middle School Gym.

The 2019-2020 group of on-air Ramblers is 75% female, and reflects a growing trend of female voices in amateur radio.

Come out and meet this dynamic group of young people who have fun learning, teaching, and sharing their love of radio.

This two-day visit of the Ramblers Radio Club is made possible through the cooperation of the Walker County (Georgia) School System, the Lafayette Middle School, the parents of the Ramblers, and last but certainly not least, Jody Carter, Sponsor of the Rambler Radio Club.

“It is the Mission of Walker County Schools to ensure all students graduate – Ready for College, Ready for Work, Ready for Life!”
