Radio Scouting Presentation from HamCom 2016

HamCom Radio Scouting 2016 V1We’ve added to our resource page on Radio Scouting Presentations. This one is from last weekend’s HamCom where Jim, K5ND, spoke on all things related to Radio Scouting.

It does a good job of explaining the overall structure of Radio Scouting from the World Scout level to the National level and to the BSA Council level. It also updates the participation numbers from 2015 and a few from the last twelve months.

We’ve provided PowerPoint, PDF, and Keynote file formats.

Hope it will be of help when you’re preparing your own presentations.
