Re: Scout contacts needed for Merit Badge College.
- A reminder that we will be QRV as WA5CKF from a Merit Badge College
in Irving, Texas on Scout frequencies 7.190 or 14.290 on Saturday 13
December, 2008 1800 to maybe 2100Z. We will also be on IRLP Node
9458, The Dallas Lone Star Reflector channel 8. Any number of
stations can join in there. We should had a good group of scouts who
need to make their 10 minute contact for the badge so lets help them
If you want to coordinate a contact, call my cell on Saturday after
1800Z as I will be doing the class part up until then. Thanks.
Number is 214-403-1464.

Didn't hear you on IRLP - how did the class go?
My son had a nice QSO with a new ham scout in Montana. He was pretty
nervous, but he enjoyed it.
