Chris Carlsen, N2PBN, will be joining several boy scouts from around
the area on the weekend of May 19-21 at the Chatham Fairgrounds. Ham radio will be
one of the activities which revolve mainly around scouting programs. Chris
estimates that there will be several hundred scouts at this annual event.
Chris is looking for members of the ham community to assist in setting up the
HF antenna and other equipment. Assistance will also be needed with helping the
scouts work the HF radios to make contacts. He will also need to borrow an antenna
from the club or from a fellow ham.
Anyone joining Chris at this event is advised to bring their own food and refreshment.
Please contact Chris if you can assist with this event in any manner.
