Your help is needed to teach Radio Merit Badge to Scouts!
Surveys show that many hams got interested in radio through Scouting!
Merit Badge has not been a popular merit badge. Only about 4,000 Radio Merit Badges are earned in the US each year.
When compared to the 85,000 Swimming Merit Badges earned annually, it's obvious that we need to promote Amateur
Radio to youth.
This site shows hams how easy it is to run a Radio Merit Badge course in their area. A Radio Merit Badge
event is a great way to promote a follow-on Technican Licensing course!
Why Hams Are Needed!
