Radio Ham wins Congressional App Challenge

High-school student Sean Donelan KM6NGN won the 2020 Congressional App Challenge (CAC) for California's 11th District for his NetHam App

Patch reports:

The CAC is a public initiative to encourage young people to learn how to code in an effort to inspire creativity and encourage interest in STEM — Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics — education.

The winner of the challenge was Sean Donelan, who lives in Concord and attends Northgate High School. Donelan designed and created, "NetHam: The Public Service Event Coordinator's Third Hand."

Donelan's winning software application replaces amateur radio operators' large, unwieldy equipment and automates their more basic tasks. The app is meant to allow operators to more easily serve as long-range communicators for public events.

"I congratulate Sean on the design of a creative and useful app that would benefit the amateur radio community and look forward to seeing 'NetHam' represent the many talents of Contra Costa County's students when on display in the United States Capitol," said Congressman DeSaulnier, who hosted the competition for the sixth time.

Thank you, CVARC, for the post!

Thanks Clint
Strange there is no information on Sean’s QRZ nor Congressman DeSaulnier’s web page regarding the newly developed app other than what you describe.
Can’t find anything on Google Play nor Apple App store.

What is the large, unwieldy equipment referred to  ?

Looking for more information
Bill

Thanks Clint. I didn’t see the video yesterday, but just now watched it.

What is the future of this app Sean KN6NGN has invented, and of course will there be documentation on how to build this ?
