ClayARES Training AEC Joe Bassett (W1WCN) visited Cub Scout Pack 128 to share the fun of amateur radio. Twenty Cubs and Webelos learned about propagation, phonetics and prowords. By all accounts everyone had a good time with plenty of questions answered and 5 states (Michigan, Texas, Indiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma) contacted.
This weekend at the Merit badge fair we had 26 scouts pass the Radio merit badge. It was a great weekend and we all had a great time.
The location for KB4SA during the Jamboree on the Air will be at Black Creek Park on Fleming Island, US17 South (the entrance is just north of Black Creek).

Please send a us a message on our Contact page if you plan to attend so we know how many scouts to plan for.
