What do radios have to do with Penguins? Here’s some really fantastic news. The YSU Penguins showed they “have what it takes” by coming in 6th place in the School Club Roundup category: School Club - College/University - W/VE. This is a national competition of schools where school stations contact others in the US and in Foreign countries. For those who are not familiar with amateur radio, it is the backup for communications emergencies and works hand-in-hand with first responders and Incident Command operations. Among others, our own Criminal Justice professor Dr. Gordon Frissora is an advisor of the school club here at YSU, which is known as “K8YSU." Here’s a link to the results webpage:
