Field Day at WB1GOF

Join the PART club for Field Day, 2006. I walked around the operating area and talked with several of the operators during the contest this year. Some were brand new, some were "old timers". We operated the GOTA station ("Get On The Air") using the club callsign of WB1GOF, and the rest of the stations were using KD1D. We operated from 160 meters, up to 1294.5 MHz, and even snagged a QSO through the ISS space station repeater! Total claimed QSOs: around 500. Total operators and visitors: 35.

Iwas if you would be interested in doing a show on Scouting and Radio? I've been a ham for 30 years and a Scouter for 35. I also run A radio Merit Badge day that introduces about fifty Scouts a year to Amateur Radio.

Outline would be:

Scouting and Ham Radio
Radio Merit Badge
Radio Merit Badge Day
Radio At Scout Camps
Radio at the National Jamboree
Jamboree On the Air
The ScoutRadio Group
