Lets Go Island DXing!
Volume 6 of The Adventures
of Zack and Max takes us on a journey with HF amateur radio. Zack, Max and Mady,
along with their family and friends, take a weekend road trip and have their own
mini DXpedition. This means that they went to a nearby yet remote location (Orcas
Island, one of Washington States San Juan Islands), and while camping tried to
make as many world wide contacts as possible. They discover that HF is a way to
contact the whole world, and that one does not need to spend a lot of money or go
to the ends of the earth to have fun with ham radio DXing.
The Adventures of Zack and Max - Volume 5
Max in Space
Volume 5 of The Adventures of Zack and Max, Max in Space, explores new radio technologies,
both digital and satellite. The writers are again the students from the Lake Washington
Ham Club (KC7OIO) at Ben Franklin Elementary School in Kirkland, Washington. Under
the leadership of Mr. Dave Condon (KI7YP), the students set out to learn about amateur
radio in space, specifically digital radio, satellites, and satellite orbits. A
local aerospace facility, Aerojet, invited the writers of our comic book to take
a field trip and see first hand everything from propulsion systems for satellites
to how radios are used in space to help position equipment.
We would like to extend a special thanks to everyone at Aerojet who made this comic
book possible. We would also like to thank our wonderful illustrator, Kayoko Nakajima,
who used the young writers words and drawings to create another splendid piece.
We hope that your whole family will enjoy Zack and Max's latest journey.
The Adventures of Zack and Max - Volume 4

of ham radio equipment.
Once again, the students from the Lake Washington Ham Club, along with their leader
Dave Condon, K17YP, wrote most of the story loosely based on their own clubs experiences
during the 2005 Field Day exercise.
Zack, Mady and Max discover the fun and challenges of camping out with radios
as they participate with friends and family during Field Day!
