Michael KM6MJM, a new ham and scout leader is the Control Operator for the K2BSA/6 for an event being held on September 6th at the LDS Church on Jackson and California Streets. He would like to introduce Scouts to amateur radio and has asked permission to use the W6TJ repeater from 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm for contacts to talk with Scouts.
He has asked for a few of our members to be available to talk to the Scouts on the air. This is an open to the public event and our group has been invited to set up a booth. The only radio they have is a Baofeng HT. If anyone is interested in attending and bringing some basic equipment, I can let Michael know.
Let’s support this effort and stand by to talk to the scouts and help encourage them to become future ham operators.
Please limit your use of the repeater during the time slot of 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 6.
This is a “fair” with several vendors and not just a Scouting or ham event. Volunteers who have offered to attend and bring ham equipment are:
- Ted KM6AYC
- Juan KM6CFH
- Marlene KK6CTX
Club members are asked to be available on the W6TJ repeater to talk to the scouts during the event (Sept. 6 between 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.)

After the great showing for the “Show and Tell” at the July 2018 meeting, it occured to a few of us that the club members may have projects and accomplishments that have gone unsung! Please send in a description, pictures and web links so we can feature your corner of Ham Radio:
