Radio Merit Badge

L-R: Andrew, Mark, John, Bill (K0VBU), Marek, Winston (back), John, Isaac.

Several adult leaders offered campers the opportunity to earn merit badges in the campsite during free periods. Bill Henderson, amateur radio operator K0VBU, offered Radio merit badge. The class of seven Scouts met daily after lunch for 45 minutes, and then took turns operating the radio station during free times. The Scouts contacted other amateur radio operators throughout the United States, as well as in many other countries, including Japan, Russia, Germany, Bosnia-Herzegovina and others. All seven Scouts completed the merit badge before leaving camp.
