Re: [ScoutRadio] Amateur Radio operators... for Operation On Target on Sat., July 20, 2013
- I participated with one of the groups in Utah for On Target. We had a blast. Any of you out there that find news reports on it, please post a link for the rest of us. I heard radio chatter that FOX 13 in SLC was at one of the sites. I haven't found a link to their story yet.

In addition, 15 major mountains from Atlanta to Mine will be manned by Ham Radio operators with APRS trying to relay an APRS text message from Maine to Georgia (from noon to 1600). These teams will also have mirrors for any scout troops that can see them. See: http://aprs.org/at-golden-packet.html These radio teams are monitoring 445.925 MHz for voice and 145.34 MHz for packet (not the national 144.39).
