They will also be competing with 40,000 other Amateur (Ham) Radio enthusiasts across North America to see how many contacts they can make. There will be demonstrations and educational activities for anyone who is interested in learning about Ham Radio and Amateur Radio. A couple of their youngest members will also be there to encourage youth engagement in this field of activity.
