Our anniversary field week in Salzgitter Bad
What do you start with a résumé? With the weather? That was not kind to us, but the rain spared us at least for many of the main activities. The youth camp took place almost entirely in the dry and in the sunshine. Only the evening activities from Thursday suffered a lot from the cool, wet weather.
But now to the activities: Monday to Wednesday was all about youth: foxes and schnitzel were hunted, camp games were held and contact was made with Namibia. To the exciting questions from all areas from climate to accommodation, there were also exciting answers from Werner, V51JP. The winners of the activities then went home with trophies and prizes.
Wednesday evening the lecture by Reiner, DL2AAZ on the topic of satellite radio. From OSCAR-1 to OSCAR-7 and OSCAR-40 to OSCAR-100: An interesting outline through satellite time.
Our annual general meeting then followed on Thursday evening: with 24 participants reasonably well attended - although all those present needed a little exercise towards the end to get the cold bones going again.
Also on Thursday and Friday mornings there was a course for beginners in the RaspberryPi on the program. In cooperation with the holiday program and the VHS Salzgitter, 6 participants got their money's worth.
The lecture by Dr. Günter Hein, DJ6RU on Friday evening rounded off the seminar program. Here everything revolved around the electromagnetic wave. We were able to experience the experiment that Heinrich Hertz carried out over 100 years ago to detect these waves live and in color through Sigi, DJ5TR. Most radio amateurs might have thought that everything was already known about this electromagnetic wave - far from it! All participants were surprised by a lot of new information.
The mobile fox hunt and foxoring on Saturday was not well received. Nevertheless, a total of 6 participating vehicles and 2 fox hunters on foot were happy about the trophies and also about 4 Yaesu handheld radios.
Our trunk flea market and the closing event then fell into the water.
Our conclusion: light and shadow. Some events were really great and well attended, others unfortunately went under due to a lack of participation.
