Radio Merit Badge, Camp George W. Pirtle, success.
It sure was hot, but we were able to get 14 Scouts through the Radio
Merit Badge last week
at the George W. Pirtle Scout Reservation on Lake Murval in East Texas.
Contacts were made
on the Awful Awful Ugly net on 3855 and these guys and Wayne KB5AAU, the
net control took
our boys to heart and really made their contacts memorable. I can't say
thanks enough. Bookwork
was done with material authored by James Alderman and his material sure
made the class go
smoothly. I look to have some future hams come out of this bunch.
Thanks to Bart McReynolds KE5WEG as co-teacher and the guys back at the
Palestine Tx Club who
stood by to help the Scouts make contacts.
Winter camp is right around the corner for us and many other camps and
we look forward to the cooler
weather. I you have a camp near you, please consider volunteering your
services to teach Radio Merit
Badge as I know you will be welcomed.
Did I mention it was HOT
