This also couldn’t have been done without Paul Teel (WB5ANX) securing our spot at another council event and Mark Adams (WA5MA) providing flyers and QSL cards for those […]

I hope one day to do a larger scale merit badge for the council so that we can work on growing the younger population to the hobby. What amazed both Paul and I was that they were really interested in […]
