      Dale, I'm also happy to hear about your activity with the new scouting ham station. We are working to expand our camp station coverage in the Circle 10 Council in the Dallas / Fort Worth area of Texas. I have two sons in scouting, a Star & Life, and they are both impressed by PSK31 since the boys equate digital modes like PSK31 with "texting the world". I think digital modes are a great way to interest modern day youth in hamming and help grow our ranks.
