Summer activity from Seven Ranges Scout Reservation
- Hi all fellow hams,
I'm Crew Advisor for new Venture Crew 73 in Canton, Ohio, affiliated
with Canton Amateur Radio Club and Buckeye Council.
Will be operating a portable amateur station on Thursdays only,
starting July 6 and running through August 10, 2006. Plan to be on the
air from Seven Ranges Scout Reservation approx 1:00 PM EDT till
whenever, with a 90 minute break during evening meal and flag retreat
ceremony at 5:00 PM.
Seven Ranges is situated on 900 acres about ten miles south of Salem,
Ohio in the northeastern part of the state.
Will be demoing ham radio for all interested campers. Typically get
400+ new campers each week of the season. Plan to use 75, 40, 20 & 17
meter SSB, using my call, NX8J. Look for us on or near the standard
JOTA frequencies, or near the high end of 17 meters. Wire antennas and
one hundred watts is what we'll have on our end.
Desire to QSO with scouts and scouters, but all are welcome,
73 de Dale NX8J
