|One of my particular interest its
on promote Hamradio, the exchange is just good Scout talk
about Scouting experiences, ham radio and friendship
greetings, may of which may lead to lasting pen-pal
exchanges. If you never have been scout talk to some
scouts about hamradio and give them the thrill of talking
to you. This Annual Scouting/Ham radio event is sponsored
by the World Scout Bureau Most operations will occur
during period 0001GMt Saturday to 2400GMT Sunday, but
