2021 - Feb HamCation JOTA Forum Webinar - This is the full presentation, in PDF.

        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.

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.
