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.

Donation Center
We are collecting donations to underwrite our program costs. All our events and services are provided free of charge to youth and scouts. We have no paid staff and dozens of volunteers and ham assistants. We would like to offer a Free HT radio to newly licenced youth and a loaner Scout HamBox ('ammo-can' type) stations when the youth upgrade to general class. We had 12,300 participants in 2019, all of them learned SOS in Morse code. Our council is one of the most active in the field with plans to expand and assist other areas.

A donation of $25 covers an HT for youth.
Our Scout HamBox is about $750 in materials and loaned to scouts.

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.
