Amateur Radio Operator Rating Strip


The BSA has just announced the Amateur Radio Operator Rating Strip for wear on youth and adult member uniforms. All registered youth members and adult leaders who also hold a valid amateur radio license are eligible to wear the rating strip.

You can read more and see the rating strip at the Operator Rating page on this website.

They should be in stock at the Supply warehouse in about two weeks. It will take longer for them to reach the stores.

This is fantastic news for amateur radio and Scouting.


  1. Thanks for letting us know about the Amateur Radio Operator strip. Over 70 scouts have taken the Radio Merit badge course here in Eastern NC. This could
    help encourage the Scouts to continue with their radio training. 73′ Dave, K4KDP, A Scout is Reverent
