Radio Merit Badge at Camp Melakwa
I just returned from staffing 2 weeks at summer camp. From the list of many
jobs I had my favorite was teaching the Radio Merit Badge. HF conditions
tended to be vary poor through out camp, although I was able to generate
lots of interest in packet radio. I have many pictures of the portable
station we had set up and I plan on sending a couple into the up front
section of QST.
Oh yeah, Did you know that on the top of the radio merit badge patch BSA is
spelled out in morse code. I had never noticed this until on of my scouts
noticed the morse code and asked me what it spelled.
