Amateur radio provides an exciting and engaging introduction to a wide
range of technologies with a STEM foundation. We provide the fun of
communicating with other Scouts, and the magic of long distance
communication, even in remote areas without cell service. We can help
Scouts and leaders with amateur radio education, Scout advancement, and
integrate amateur radio into scouting activities.
Our mission statement:
Radio Scouting, Inc., is the amateur radio
station and club of the Boy Scouts of America, Central Florida Council.
It shall be our purpose to further the exchange of information and
cooperation between the public and scouting, to promote radio knowledge,
youth activities, fraternalism, individual operating efficiency, and to
conduct programs and activities as to advance the general interest and
welfare of Amateur Radio and Scouting in the community.

MEMBERSHIP: We are seeking both adults and youth to assist with the club, program, and scouting.
Membership is open to ALL scouters and general public.
CLUB AREA: This club currently spans all of central Florida including 9
counties with 26,000 scouts and may expand further as this radio program
grows. We welcome supporters from around the world.
WALKINS: By appointment only as this is a BSA Camp with restricted
access. See our site for events and contact info.
Reciprocal Membership: Many ham & ARRL clubs offer our newly licensed
scouts free Junior Memberships for their local clubs. (Non-voting
members under 18, no dues.) The scouts we test come from much of the
south east including: TN, GA, NC, SC through to Keywest. Our goal is to
encourage them to join their local clubs when they return and bring
youth back in to the hobby.
Our partner clubs are Orlando Amateur Radio Club (ORAC) and Lake Amateur
Radio Association (LARA). Adults with no interest in scouting or youth
are directed to these local clubs.
