It's the only organization that represents hams at the
government level. The current resources available to us through the ARRL are
astounding. Check out their web site and find out what's going on!

AES Hamfest: 4640 S. Polaris Ave.,
Las Vegas, NV- First Saturday of every
month starts at 7:00 AM.
Here is another great opportunity to
show off Ham Radio to our youth!
The Varsity Scouts On Target exercise is July 19, 2003. Official signalling time is 11:00 AM-1:00 PM. Teams will be on several local peaks and many teams do not have amateur radio operators lined up to go with them! Several peaks are drive up (Utah Hill and Seegmiller) and others like Pine Valley would require a hike (overnight most likely). I would like to coordinate as much as possible any hams that would like to volunteer and get them in touch with Scout teams that are going to participate.
Here are some interesting links:
If folks at home would like to get involved, they can watch mountain tops for mirror flashes as boys try to flash their home, and perhaps even flash them back! They can also listen in on repeaters and the suggested simplex frequencies. Casey and I are going with groups, and there is plenty of room for help if anyone would like to go with a team and introduce some youth to Ham Radio!
