Radio Merit Badge - Update

posted Oct 13, 2008, 8:30 AM by Karen Walker   [ updated Oct 13, 2008, 8:35 AM ]
A few reminders/items of interest:

Merit badge pamphlets - I still have 4 available.

Notebooks - I will have notebooks with the slides and study material for the remaining 8 Scouts who didn't receive one on Tuesday at the next meeting.

Worksheets - feel free to read/study ahead and fill out the worksheet -those who can are welcome to complete the worksheet and the
associated requirements.

ON THE AIR - I will setup a couple or three sessions, most likely on a weekend, for requirements 7 and 9-a-2. All Scouts will have the opportunity to talk, on the air, with other hams and perhaps even other Scouts !!! The first opportunity will be Saturday, October 18th during the JOTA (Jamboree On The Air). Definitely talk over ham radio with Scouts in the US and perhaps even in Canada and other countries, depending upon atmospheric conditions. LET ME KNOW IF YOU WISH TO ATTEND THIS EVENT. There will be others, but none possibly as exciting as JOTA 2008. I will be portable and will most likely set up in my yard or somewhere else more convenient. If the weather is not cooperative, I'll set up inside.

QUESTIONS - If at ANY time you have questions about the material, call me at home at 495-1970 (evenings and weekends) or email me.

Next Session - TBD

John Evans, ASM, Troop 70
