Radio Merit Badge on June 24th in Azle

We will offer the Radio Merit Badge again this summer on June 24 8:30AM to Noon at the Azle Fire Station (900 Lakeview Dr, Azle, TX 76020) as part of ARRL Field Day. Field Day is a national Emergency Preparedness Exercise, where we test the ability to field deploy radio communications equipment and attempt to exchange simple information with as many other locations as possible (and as such counts toward the requirement for the Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge).

All the requirements for the Radio Merit Badge will be completed in this single session from 8:30-noon. At 1PM, we will have a radio available to the general public to use (GOTA Station), so Scout seeking the Emergency Preparedness requirement should come anytime after 1PM to fulfill that requirement (with approval from their MB Councilor for EP).
