The Montgomery Amateur Radio Club (MARC) and the Rockville Science Center cosponsored the Radio Merit Badge over the weekend of June 24-25. The turnout for the program was amazing.
We had about 40 Scouts attend the Merit Badge class, from Maryland, DC, Pennsylvania, Northern VA, and the Hudson Valley in New York. The NY family drove 5 hours from Brooklyn for this class! Every Scout who attended earned the Radio Merit Badge. Some scouts returned on Sunday to obtain an amateur license.
The club broke the Scouts into four groups to do the hands on activity required by the merit badge. The program started at 10 and ended at 4 PM.
Many thanks to the Montgomery Amateur Radio Club (MARC) and the Rockville Science Center for their support!
