RE: [ScoutRadio] Re: Summer Camp Nets
- Thanks, Frank. I was looking over the protocol again. I think #7 may be
a little too broad and confusing. I think we should stick to just listing
the 1, 7, and 9 PM calling slots, as that will concentrate the most people
in the smallest amount of time.
What do you think?

- Nathaniel, please let us know how the SCCP works for you. In no small sense, it's still in the Beta testing phase and we may have to make adjustments, depending upon ham-Scouters' experiences.
Howz it feel to be a Guinea pig? 8-)
HF is off limits for me for the next couple weeks at least, now that the AZ Natl Forests are closed. Because of the AZ fires, I'm at a local county campground (directly in the direction -5 mi north- the Brins Fires will head if the winds pick up and still no rain) which is heavily forested and no way to get up an HF antenna high enough (vertical would be my only option, but I don't have my 50' mast with me). So, no Field Day, no SCCP, no HF until it rains or snows.
