After the troop meeting, Jacob Bruner will hold a 15 minute meeting with the scouts who have earned their amateur radio licenses, and anyone else who may be interested in radio, to briefly discuss what we’d like to do now and how we might be of service to the troop and community. In addition, we have been asked to speak to an upcoming District Roundtable meeting about Amateur Radio and the Radio Merit Badge so we will need to prepare for the presentation.

We are a fun group with members from Falls Church City, Alexandria City, Arlington County, and Fairfax County, Virginia.
