Ruth, KM4LAO, is a 17-year-old Extra Class Amateur Radio Operator from Georgia. Yay – congratulations. After discovering ham radio because of an interest in Morse code, she earned her Technician class license in June 2015. She earned her General in January 2016 and recently Extra. She is a member of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the Gwinnett Amateur Radio Society (GARS), the North Fulton Amateur Radio League (NFARL), the Young Ladies Radio League (YLRL), and the Straight Key Century Club (SKCC).
Ruth is on VHF/UHF nets weekly, including the NFARL Youth Net where she is often net control. However, her HF privileges have truly opened up the world to her! Operating either SSB or CW, Ruth loves making contacts, chasing DX, and working as many parks as possible for National Parks on the Air. In addition, she has participated in many events with local clubs, including Field Day, Maker Faire Atlanta, Girl Scout STEM Expo, Atlanta Science Festival ARISS contact, and Winter Field Day.
