Information for all - from a fellow Scouter...
I saw your message about Scout related radio. I want to pass along
information about a special event station that my troop is organizing.
On Saturday June 2, 2001 Troop 66 Carbondale, Illinois in cooperation with
the Southern Illinois University Amateur Radio Club will be commemorating
National Trails Day by operating a special event station in southern
Illinois, near the route of the American Discovery Trail.
The special event station will be using Troop 66's club callsign: KA9BSA.
Information about frequencies and QSLs will be published in QST.
See the latest Boy's Life for a great article about the American Discovery
Trail and work that scouts have done to make the trail a reality.
I really appreciate anything you can do to spread the word about this event.
Thanks and 73,
