John Dronberger, N5YZA, provided information for Camp John Nickels in southwest Oklahoma City:

We will be using the call WB5BSA, the troop club call for Troop 850 in Guthrie.  We will be operating on 40 meters and 20 meters depending on band conditions, 7.190 and 14.290, or were ever there is a troop to talk to.  We hope to see you there or on the air.


All are welcome to join in the Largest Scouting Event in the World - right here in Edmond!

Over 1.3 million youth participating with over 11,000 stations operated by 20,000 amateur radio operators from 150 countries worldwide!  Everyone is welcome to visit and see Amateur Radio as well as operate a radio.  Licensed operators are also requested to visit and help.

Our club member (and amateur radio merit badge counselor) Roger Bullock, KC0OOX sent the following information:

I will be at the location on Friday the 20th at 9 pm to set up the antennas and unload equipment into the building.  I will then return at 7 am on the 21st to get everything up and running.  The event will open to the youth at 9 am and run until the last group leaves which has been at 5 pm the past two years.

There will be 4 stations set up.
-HF Phone
-HF Digital
-Experimental Station

Experimental station is for hams to bring any project they would like to work on or test whether it be radio, antenna, etc.  This allows for club members to visit and help each other on various projects and invite the youth to get more hands on should they want to help.

If club member would like to assist the youth in operating the radios at the stations as they make contacts, that would be greatly appreciated.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me.
