RE: [Scoutradio] Tech class Powerpoint presentation? (was "Radio Merit Badge Materials In Files Area")
- Hi all!
I to downloaded the Radio Merit Badge files. They are great!
Has anyone developed a Tech class Powerpoint presentation to
use in teaching Scouts and others to get their Tech class
Amateur Radio license? I have some local Scouts here
interested in getting their license (some of them already
have their Radio MB).
Thanks in advance!

I just downloaded the materials and they are excellent!
I will be putting together a class for our troop which I hope we can
tie into this year's JOTA. Thanks for getting this material together.
