Ham Radio Featured at School:

MORIAH — The new Amateur Radio Station at Moriah Central School lets students talk with other schools and individuals around the world. Any student or community member who is interested in public service, law enforcement, emergency services, military or science and technology in general, amateur radio might be something they’d be interested in, said teacher Matthew Pray, the school’s amateur radio coordinator. “Think of using something like walkie-talkies but on a much bigger possibly worldwide scale,” he said. “Amateur radio operators share stories, and spread international goodwill wherever they are heard, and help local communities during emergencies.” The VTech student group is becoming involved with amateur radio, he said, and four members are taking the ham exam, plus student Connor Anderson is doing his senior project on Amateur radio. “We will soon have our very own radio station, W2MCS, thanks in part to the Champlain Valley Amateur Radio Club,” Pray said.”VTech will allow students to learn and experiment, and encourage students to help each other along the way.”
