This trailer will help expand our program and make it more mobile, for troop/youth group locations as well as eliminate the headaches we currently have of several volunteers having to bring gear to each event. Without permanent storage space at camp, nor a dedicated storage unit, our volunteers currently store all our youth club equipment.

We offer the BSA Radio Merit badge (BSA), ARRL Wireless award (GSUSA) and assist youth with FCC licensure. With quarterly events we expose about 10,000 youth to STEM and Amateur radio demonstrations per year.

We are reaching out to any groups that may help or know of donors to raise about $5k to cover the trailer cost and interior setup. We already have most of the equipment to go inside it.

We’ve offered a free HT to newly licensed scouts since our program, usually the Baefeng UV-5r or UV-82. This year we’re expanding our program to offer it nationally. We’ve teamed up with Gigaparts to offer the QRZ-1 Explorer Radio, expanding the New Ham Program for all scouts in the US. Scouts should contact us at RadioScoutingUS@RadioScouting.US with their newly issued callsign.
