Don Rankl, our MARC President

No "words of wisdom" this go-around...


I was contacted by Matt Mossor, N8QYA. He is the Boy Scout Advisor (Tuscarawas County).


He asked to spread the word that on May 13th, they will be providing the opportunity for the scouts to earn their Radio Merit Badge at the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds.


Dale Lamm, Perry Ballinger, Jeff Voltz and others have been involved in this worthwhile program. Matt said they are again encouraging any interested hams to help or bring a set-up (rig / antenna etc.) or just come to help and assist the scouts.


It will be similar to previous sessions as the scouts will spend time at different

"stations" and take turns with hands-on activities.


They are also in need of operators from home to be available on 2 meters and local HF to provide contacts to the scouts.


Contact Jeff Voltz is you can help. His email- mailto:jvoltzoilandgas@yahoo.com.
