Nice start for the Web site. I have a question, though, about the rankings.
Scout level: Earn at least 50 points.
Tenderfoot level: Earn at least 100 points.
1st C lass level: Earn at least 200 points.
2nd Class level: Earn at least 300 points.
Star level: Earn at least 400 points.
Life level: Earn at least 500 points.
Eagle level: Earn at least 600 points.
In Scouting, 2nd Class is a lower rank than 1st Class, but you have 2nd Class as the higher rank. Is this an oversight, or was there a reason that you put 2nd class higher?
Also, a type: on the list, you have a space between the C and the L in 1st Class. (Sorry, but I nitpick on grammar and spelling.) J
Otherwise, like I said it’s a great beginning!

After much discussion and work we are getting close to announcing a new award designed to increase interest in the general ham population in talking to Scout Camps. The website is www.scota.us it is not finished yet but I would like feedback. In particular you will find a directory with camps. I would like to know corrections that need to be done.
Also if you know of a camp station callsign please let me know and I will add it to the list. If you are interested in being more involved just email me and I will add you to our yahoo group for SCOTA.
Hi Frank. Thanks for the insight. I ll pull the bad URL for now and if in the future we manage to find a replacement, we ll deal with it at that time. ThanksMessage 1 of 8 , May 1, 2011View SourceHi Frank.
Thanks for the insight.
I'll pull the bad URL for now and if in the future we manage to find a
replacement, we'll deal with it at that time.

I have sent numerous inquiries to HQ and several Directors and have not, in two years, received any kind of reply. Wait: I should say on one occasion, I was told that this has been a major conversion and that the staff is working on issues very hard and just be patient.

Improvements to the YSD was one of the recommendations of the Scouting Advisory Committee which made its report last summer to the Board. Any improvement to ZERO is still ZERO.
