> Bob, "Shacks for Packs" is a great idea. But has it been used as an Eagle project? Here in Grand Canyon Council, an Eagle project cannot benefit the Council and can't be used for Scout Camps. Myabe you've found a way around this that we can use out here. 73Ah bummer.
My other idea is for linear trails (Old railroad beds turned into parks)
is to have an Eagle get permissions to set up SIGNS explaining the
importance of COMMs to railroads (telegraph) and then to have the signs
promote FRS channel X for that trail...
Then ON the sign, he also gets to put an AD about the local HAM club as
the place to learn more...
I call it "Telegraphs to Bikes"
And what I WANTED to do was to get the Phone company that has milllions of
2wire pairs along the trail to give us a breakout pair every mile that we
could link together so that from one end of the trail to the other,
MOM's could keep in touch with sonny....
But this is against the rules for FRS, though in my mind, it can be done
with no external radio interfaces by putting a WX proof FRS HT in a pipe
and building a parabolic chicken wire enclosure that would make sure the
FRS was only receivable along the linear trail. Then link them...
I think it woiuld be in the spirit of FRS to provide an emergency
COMM channel that would work along the length of the trial.
But again, fo HAM radio, the advantage is that on the COMM signs
educating the public about the history of telegraph along the railroads
and the use of FRS for safety on the trial, you get to put your CLUB

rasing funds and assembling a two meter station for a local Red Cross
chapter or perhaps a similar project for a shelter radio kit.
