Combined ARRL Field Day and Scout Preparedness Day, a joint effort of Troop 575 (Lake Erie Council) and local ham radio operators, open to the public and hoping to recruit both scouts and hams!

We incorporated our FIELD DAY event with the SCOTA activities. Prior to the official start of the FD event, We went on the air at 10AM local time and operated exclusively for SCOTA and made contact with 23 stations in 15 states and Manitoba, Canada. At 1800z FD began and during the event we contacted an additional 147 stations as both an FD station and for SCOTA. After wrapping up, we had a total of 170 contacts in 43 states and 7 countries, including some in South America, North Africa, the Caribbean Islands and the South Pacific. The most distant contact was Hawaii at 4,500 miles. We will be uploading my log to LOTW as soon as we have a chance to do my computer logging.

Incidentally, we tried contacting K2BSA many times during my activation, but to no avail. This, despite the fact that we logged six (6) contacts in both the North and South sections of Texas. Anyway, that's the story on this end. Both the Scouts and our radio team had a great time. We look forward to doing this again sometime.

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.
