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.
