Its been 4 years.
K2BSA's going back to Summit Bechtel for the 2017 National Scouting
Jamboree in Beckley WV, we arrive this weekend to begin building the
station. Help us show off Amateur Radio to the many (25,000) scouts at
the Jamboree. We'll be on the FM and linear satellites.
I appreciated K8YSE's synopsis from 2013 so much I thought I'd share it
