Thanks Brian, N9WIS, for a great article about K2BSA on the ARRL
I really like the sample Radiogram going from Westy to Pee Wee
Harris. After all those years, Pee Wee is still a Patrol Leader.
Those of you who read Boy's Life will understand ;-)
Amateur Radio Newsline also has a nice story by Mark Abramowicz,
NT3V on the K2BSA operation. You can hear it or download it from
If you're not going yourself, make sure that the parents and Scout
leaders in your area know how to contact you by phone or e-mail.
That way you can forward radiogram messages from them to their sons
via the National Traffic system and K2BSA. No experience is needed
as newcomers are always welcomed and coached on local nets. Many
areas have VHF traffic nets if you're a Technician class licensee.
