3538Re: [ScoutRadio] Winter camporee station
- Jan 6, 2010The Scouts respond best to things they can see right up close. For digital I would suggest SSTV, easy setup, and you could collect pictures all day to share with the boys. PSK31 is also real easy to setup but a little less intuitive to the boys perhaps because they can't understand what they are seeing as easily. The waterfall is easy enough to understand so by all means give it a try as well.Good luck and 73'sOn Jan 6, 2010, at 10:43 PM, JRK wrote:
Old Capitol Valley District will be holding a winter
camporee Jan. 30 & 31 in Coralville Iowa.
We will be setting up a radio station for our scouts to
come in and discover ham radio.
We will have an HF station on 20 meters working around
14.290. We also hope to have an echolink station running
and a 2 meter rig scanning the local repeaters.
Call sign will be KB0GVI
We will have some code sheets and keys there for the
scouts to play with, also info on test requirements, and
inexpensive ways to get on the air.
We also plan on having a few stories of hams in action, ie
the Iowa City tornado of a few years ago and the flooding
in Cedar Rapids. Along with this I am going to have
contact info for the local clubs.
I have not done any digital modes on radio and am looking
for info on the to present to the scouts. Any suggestions
would be a big help.
Thanks and '73s
