Re: Re: [Scoutradio] Digest Number 434
- I think the net is a good idea. I would like to see it on Saturday, early afternoon, for camp stations like ours to check in.
K3BSA is a permanent Scout camp station. We are on the air every Friday evening and all day Saturday up to about 5:00 p.m.
Check out our website where you can see pictures of our station, http://www.k3bsa.org.
