      It has been my experience there are three things that Cub Scouts like to do.
      1. Talk on the radio
      2. Play with something preferably a keyer or a shortwave receiver
      3. Build something.
      We ususally give a 10-15 minute talk about radio keeping it high level and general and with some funny stories.  Then we have an HF rig ready to talk to the U.S.  Lastly we have three or four keyers along with posters and QSL cards (watch the "legs" on your equipment!).  Also if you can get cards from a foreign radio station to hand out that goes over big.  We got the BBC one year.  We have had them build foxhole radios and simple keyers.
       
      Good luck.  This is a great group to talk to and get "prepped" for future hams.

      Briefing for Cub Scouts

      I've just been asked to give a briefing to a Cub Scout Pack on Amateur
      Radio. Although I already have one done it primarily focuses on the
      adult/scout leader population. I know I've asked for ideas before and
      the group has been very receptive. Has anyone done something like this
      for Cub Scouts or have any ideas to share that might keep their
      interest? I'm guessing I'll have between 30 mins - 1 hr. I may try to
      set up a couple of stations (VHF, UHF, CW Osicillator, etc). Any
      ideas/input from the group would be appreciated.

      Thanks,

      at our JOTA, i brought 4 different code keys with Pizeo beeper/mechanical
      buzzer and an old sounder to let the boys get an idea of what morse sounds
      like and used to in the railroad landline days. i had a few sheets of mose
      code around. the younger boys were facinated with it and most tried to send
      there name or something else. one sent di dit di dit di dit and said
      that was a period. when i corrected him he showed me that on my old 40s-50s
      BSA signaler it showed that for period. i was overwelmed by how much
      interest there was in the morse code.

      First, let me second Barry's suggestion. Beepers and buzzers with keys or
      paddles hooked to them are a source of neverending fascination for some
      boys. Not every one will get into it, but almost every single cub will at
      least try to send his name. A few will be happy to spend the whole evening
      clicking away.

      When Gordon West taught us, the other thing that got the attention of the
      cub-scout boys (and many of the older boys, and dads) was direction
      finding. He had a teeny, tiny transmitter that he passed out into the
      audience.
      The boys passed it around for a few minutes and hid it in the crowd. Gordo
      then picked up a small RDF set and proceeded to determine which aisle of
      tables it was in.

      "Do it again!" was the resounding call from the boys.

      I don't know the details of what gear he used, but I do know that it was a
      hit.

      Passed my tech that day.
