New Scout Amateur Radio Station for Summer Camp (WR5WR)
- The Longhorn Council and the Worth Ranch Amateur Radio Association
will be operating a new Scout Amateur Radio station from Worth Ranch
Scout Camp in Pala Pinto, TX. about 80 miles west of Ft. Worth, TX.
for our 2008 camp season. The station call is WR5WR and we will be on
the air most morning and evening starting on the evening of June 8th
2008 and continue to operate until June the 28th which is the end of
the camp season at Worth Ranch. We will be operateing HF on or near
the standard scout freqs. We will try to operate some PSK-31 and
other digital modes as well. We will also try some APRS. I will be
teaching the Radio merit badge twice a day, and the station will be up
before and after the classes. If you hear us give us a call and talk
to a scout.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for all you do!!
