The Boy Scouts of America has approved our request for six months use of an Icom Amateur Radio Station at Rainbow Council next year. The station allows us to introduce the hobby to Scouts during the 2014 program year.
You can read our application here.
This is very good news for our budding ham radio program. By operating a station during the summer camping season, we can move to our next goal of establishing a permanent radio station at Rainbow Council Reservation for licensed Scouts to use.
On a personal note, I want to thank Jim Wilson, K5ND, for his assistance in this process.
