As mentioned on the main page, our distinction has been a younger breed of hams, banding together, keeping each other active in some form.  Piecing all the history on how it all came to be isn't easy.  So here is a breakdown of who obtained their license when, and when they attended school.  (I hope people don't mind me leaking this bit of information about them.  The bit I've posted thus far as helped create the "pieces" from people who stumble into this page.)  Keeping track of the generations and the history is tricky, but is interesting.  

It's difficult to identify youth because as of April 1999, the FCC stopped including date of birth information in their records.  Most of the founding members have little contact with the school to be able to keep informed of any hams since then.

In addition to the sheer number of students that became hams from Ashwaubenon high school, there are two know teachers that also held a license.  Mr. Ken Rudie, N9ZRU (Jan 95-05) a tech ed teacher who was the AHSTC advisor from 1993 till he retired in 1999.  Also Mr. John Fischer, N9XOI, (June 94-04)(crazy john) a science teacher.

Also as mentioned, another unique thing about the AHSTC, was that the school allowed a "users group."  This group was made up of other students from other local schools, and it also included other instrumental and sometimes older-elmering members.   All members, AHS students and abroad met together at the high school, and had the same voting, membership, and repeater access privileges, and worked on projects together.

Unfortunately I don't have records of who ever attended a meeting, or checked into the Green Bay area youth net.  So anyone outside of AHS, I can only go by memory.   So while the hams listed below may or may not have had much to do with our club, they were/are part of the unique younger ham radio scene.  Please let me know if I missed someone.
