Licensed Amateur Radio operators volunteer to either set up a radio station at a special site, or invite local Scouts to their home stations.
introduces the wonderful world wide hobby of Amateur Radio (Ham radio) to the
scouts. Here in the United States, all amateur radio operators are
licensed by the Federal Communications Commission
A testing procedure is in place to earn your license.
The hobby is one that offers many avenues to explore. From local clear FM communications, to world wide HF bands, to the combination of the personal computer and radios. There is always a new facet to explore.
