K2BSA Callsign Requests Issue

I just wanted to pass this note along to those that have been requesting callsigns.  The system has not been emailing the trustee, so the requests were not getting processed.  We will be going through the requests in the order in which they were entered into the system.  If your request was not answered, we sincerely apologize for not getting back to you.  We will continue to investigate the issue with the form submission.

K2BSA Camp Station Committee

K2BSA is happy to announce the creation of the K2BSA Camp station committee. The purpose of the committee is to create a resource for the establishment of Camp based amateur radio stations.   The committee has created its mission statement and has defined what a camp station is as well as started developing the suggested steps in successfully building a camp station.  The goal of the committee is to grow the number of permanent camp based amateur radio stations as well as to make them a useful tool in promoting amateur radio to the scouts and help full fill their scouting requirement.  We also hope that this will help generate future licensed amateur radio operators.  For more information, please use our contact form.
