"The School Amateur Radio Club Network (SARCNET) is a program that encourages Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through the establishment and operation of amateur radio clubs in schools. SARCNET was started by Julie VK3FOWL and Joe VK3YSP with the goal of introducing young people to the world of amateur radio and fostering their interest in STEM related subjects.

School Amateur Radio Clubs
Through their work with SARCNET, Julie and Joe have helped to establish amateur radio clubs in local schools, providing resources and support to both students and teachers.

Amateur Radio
The SARCNET program provides resources and support to help schools set up and operate amateur radio clubs. These resources include information on licensing requirements, equipment recommendations, and educational materials on radio theory, propagation and technology. The program also facilitates communication and collaboration between schools that have established amateur radio clubs, encouraging the sharing of best practices and the formation of a supportive community.

One of the key goals of SARCNET is to encourage student interest in STEM subjects by introducing young people to the exciting world of amateur radio. The program provides opportunities for students to learn about electronics, soldering, coding, radio communications, and related technologies.


They have also organized school events, workshops and activities to help promote the program and raise awareness of the many benefits of amateur radio. They have published articles about their program in Amateur Radio and Education Today magazines. They have been recognized for their efforts, receiving several awards from the Wireless Institute of Australia for their work in promoting amateur radio education.


The benefits of participating in SARCNET and operating an amateur radio club at school are numerous. Students who participate in the program gain practical experience in electronics, radio communications, and related technologies, as well as developing important skills in teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving. Amateur radio can be used for a wide range of purposes, from communicating with other enthusiasts around the world to providing emergency communications in times of disaster.

Overall, the School Amateur Radio Club Network is an excellent program that provides young people with the opportunity to explore their interests in STEM and develop valuable skills that will serve them well throughout their lives."
