are to be a part of it. We plan on having a station set up in my RV
trailer. We will definitely be active on SSB and PSK31 Not sure of the
call we will be using.
The location is LeRoy Illinois, should be EN50.
May the Bands be with you!

and we are looking at other things to do such as a fox hunt and
geocaching, and figuring out a way to work them in. It's what we call a
"Unity Camporee", where every participating unit runs an activity in
either the Pioneering, Fun & Games or Scoutcraft villages.
If anyone's done fox hunting or anything else interesting related to
amateur radio at a camporee, I'd enjoy hearing about it.
We will be on or near the usual Scout frequencies using SSB, CW and PSK31
as WB8BSA between about 1300-2000Z on 18 Oct.
