Hosted by Kauffman Ruritan and Troop 413
Focused on Amateur Radio (ham radio) and JOTA (Jamboree on the Air) Everyone will have opportunity to talk around the region and around the world with ham radio stations; perhaps talk to one of the million plus scouts participating in this year’s Jamboree On The Air.
Scouts can complete one of two merit badges:
Radio merit badge (unlimited registration)
Signs, Signals and Codes merit badge (limited registration)
Mature Webelos (limited registration) can participate with a STEM activity and by using ham radio
All (youth and adult) can participate in a preparation class for the FCC Amateur Radio Service Technician License test (limited registration) All prepared youth and adults can take the FCC Technician License test on Sunday morning.
Any scouts that are already hams can bring their radio gear, and can sit for a license upgrade test during the SUN testing session.
The Leader’s Guide is now available, and registration is now open by clicking on “tickets.”
