Ham Radio for Scouts and Dads
- After a successful experiment last fall with a
Ham Radio Course for Scouts and Dads, we
have another one planned starting March 6
thru April 9, six consecutive Monday nights.
6:30pm to 8:15pm. Scouts, Dads, and
"anyone else" who wants to take the course
to prepare for their Technician Class exam.
The course will be held at Camp Hinds BSA,
and is co-sponsored by the American Red
Cross who has a number of volunteers to be
trained. Scouts also can earn their Radio
Merit badge in the process. We will be
setting up an HF station on Saturday 3/17
for some hands on at the Camp.
Last fall's course netted 4 new hams:
KB1FYO, FYP, FYQ, and FYR... and another
bunch who have not passed yet... However
the seed is planted, and its just a matter of time.
We'll keep you informed how this spring's class
