Radio Merit Badge Class:

The Radio Merit Badge is a great opportunity to introduce Scouts Many facets of our hobby.  The IARC offers two to three day long Radio Merit Badge courses at the National Scouting Museum.  While not a licensing course, the RMB provides Scouts with an introduction to many topics related to Radio such as how do radio waves travel, How call signs are given out and how to tell where a station is located by those call signs, some basic electronic concepts and how to use amateur radio in an emergency situation.  A highlight of the day is giving these Scouts the opportunity to make real on the air contacts via either HF or V/U communications.
