Radio Belt Loop and Acheivement Pin
- View SourceI see that the cub scouts have an acheivement program
that issues blet loops for meeting certain
requirements (astronomy, geology, heritaget etc). What
would it take to add a HAM radio belt loop with some
simple requirements. (take part in a QSO either real
or imaginary, create a QSL card, give examples of
different radio modes and activities).
Just brain storming

Sounds like a great idea! However, given the amount of time it takes to institute changes at the National level, some of us might not see it in our lifetimes. Computers Merit Badge was last updated in 1993 when most computers were DOS with 40 mb hard drives and two megs of RAM while Photography Merit Badge was last updated in 1983, long before digital cameras.
