Icom has been a sponsor of Scouting for over 15 years by supporting Jamboree on the Air, and more recently with the station loan program for Scout councils/camps, and as the official transceiver supplier for the K2BSA National Scout Jamboree operation. Given that background, I was fascinated to learn about the ARRL’s year-long program promoting the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. It’s called National Parks on the Air.
Scouting and National Parks
The great outdoors and Scouting go together like peas and carrots! And it appears that the ARRL recognizes this as well as I see Youth/Scouting involvement as one of the items on the “Five Star Activator” award.
