Ham radio: It’s not just for old guys anymore

This video from YouTube shows 9 year old Yoshiki, KH0UA, operating in the 2009 All Asian DX Phone Contest from Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. Yoshiki is licensed in Japan as JF1UCV and contests from Saipan with his dad Kuniyoshi, 7J1FPU/W1FPU. The exchange for the contest is RS + age. Note that his second contact is with a 10 year old Japanese girl Eri, JF1VGZ/1 and they exchange 59 09 and 59 10.
