Does your Summer Camp have ham station?
I am a new group member, Chris Kelly, K0PF and trustee of W0BSA,
the Long's Peak Council Radio Club. Over the past two years
several hams, especially WB0TSX, have built a radio station
at Ben Delatour Scout Ranch in Northern Colorado. We have a
tribander and 6M Yagis on a 30 foot tower, dipoles for 40/80M
and dual band verticals/yagis for 2M/440.
We are looking for any scout summer camps that have regular or
somewhat regular ham operations. It is possible that this summer
we will be able to have the station in operation daily for the
full 9 week camp season, and we'd like to see if there are
other camps with which we can make skeds for evening contacts.
It is pretty hard to find this sort of info through BSA, as there
does not seem to be any directory of camps to consult, so I thought
this group would be a good one to ask. I note in the archives that
Bob Bruninga had a web page related to this question, but I have
been unable to access that page (help?).
So if your council summer camp(s) have a fairly regular ham radio
operation, will you please email me the details so that I can
compile a list of (a) Camp name, (b) camp location, (c) email
for the camp, (d) email of the trustee, control operator or
hams/scouters that visit and activate the station on a somewhat
regular basis? My email name is wd5ibs (former call) and my ISP
is verinet . com.
Thanks for any info you can provide. If you know of a similar
list somewhere, please send me a pointer to that list.
