AMSE Student Serves As Net Control
Daryan Qawami's active involvement in multiple AMSE Programs here at VCS did not allow enough time to also pursue the Satellite Tracking Program. So he enrolled in a community class offered at Hillside Evangelical Free Church, taught by our own ISS mentor, Mr. Marcel Marc and JH teacher, Mr. Dwain Fairweather. Recently, Daryan earned his FCC Extra Class License (highest level) which authorizes him to transmit and receive signals on the entire range of amateur bands.
In addition, Daryan serves once a month as the Net control (similar to a small group leader on radio) for our youth net hosted on the Bay-Net Repeater. The youth net is for young or new HAMs to practice their radio skills and gain radio etiquette. The Bay-Net Repeater is connected throughout the Bay Area from Oakland to Morgan Hill.
