Upstate Trail Life Camporee 2019 Saturday 10-19-19
We have been invited to take part in an event known as the Upstate Trail Life Camporee 2019 Saturday 10-19-19
The purpose for our involvement is to expose for the first time the Upstate Trail Life troops to Amateur Radio, the hobby.
At this point in time Trail Life the organization does not have a program involving radio communcations which places us in the unique position of introducing them to Amateur Radio and being able to take part in the growth of a program within their organization.
The same weekend the boy Scouts of America will be holding their area fall campout in Woodruff SC with one of their activities being the jamboree on the air.
The Spartanburg radio club will be supporting that event.
Our goal will be to set up a mini field day site and allow those that wish to do so talk with the scouts.
Activities for us will begin at 1200 hours with the setting up of equipment to be used for the event.
1400 until 1600 for show and tell with our part completely ending at 2200 hours.
If all go’s well the expectation is that we will also call the 2 Metter net from that location.
