Surveys show that many hams got interested in radio through Scouting!
4,000 Radio Merit Badges are earned in the US each year. But 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!
