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.
