Ruth will be presenting at our October 22nd SLSRC General meeting. She will be presenting to us her recent experience with YOTA (Youth On The Air) camp. 

Ruth Willet, KM4LAO, is a 22 year old Extra Class Amateur Radio operator from Cana, VA. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Kettering University in Michigan in June 2021 with a double major in Engineering Physics and Mechanical Engineering and a Minor in Acoustics. Recently, she started an online graduate class in Acoustics at Pennsylvania State University. Ruth was first licensed as a ham radio operator in 2015 after discovering that she could operate on the radio using Morse Code. Her favorite activities in ham radio are operating on satellites and HF using SSB and CW, learning new activities such as fox-oring, and mentoring others. In 2018, Ruth was named the ARRL Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Award Recipient.

Ruth will be presenting on the 2021 Youth On The Air Camp that brought together 23 young hams at the Voice of America Museum in Ohio. While attending the camp, she also helped lead the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) Contact with an astronaut on the ISS and a satellite workshop. She plans to cover how the camp was created, her role in organizing an ARISS contact, all the amateur radio and community activities that occurred during the week, the successful planning and execution of satellite workshops, favorite memories from camp, and future plans. #slsrc #hamradio
