Four weeks of summer camp (ham radio in the woods), will operate as time allows between Sunday afternoons and Friday evenings as camp is closed on Saturdays. Commercial and battery power, hopefully on 80, 40, 30, and 20 meters, ssb and cw with some qrp cw thrown in. Will post to "ham radio operators", "amateur qrp radio", "parks on the air" face book pages and the "wa9pie" cluster associated with HRD logbook if I am set up close enough to a wifi signal. Special event station qsl card is available for standard sase to my home qth which is good in qrz.com. Logging will be by pen and pencil and manually entered into eQSL after camp ends, probably some time in August. This event is set up to introduce campers and leaders alike to ham radio. People contacting us should expect to spend some time chatting with campers and leaders--not unlike Jamboree on the Air. To date I have been unsuccessful getting dmr to work from this location but I have not given up yet.

Cub Scouts entering 1st - 5th grades will learn about scouting in other countries from Scottish and Canadian Scouts, can trade patches with them (a VERY popular Scouts BSA/International Scout activity) and will even get a chance to use a ham radio to talk with scouts from other countries! Setting up HF to talk to Canada / Mexico and maybe England & Ireland, possibly to connect scouts to their home cities via HF.
