October 2023 Meeting

The next meeting of the Hazel Park Amateur Radio Club will be held on Wednesday, October 11th at 7:30 PM ET at the Hazel Park Memorial Library. Socializing starts around 7:00 PM. The meeting will include a presentation by Michael Fluegemann, KE8AQW on Radio in Scouting.

In his own words: “Over the past couple years, I’ve had the opportunity to share ham radio with multiple Scouts in the BSA program through SOTA activations on a high adventure trip, offering the radio merit badge, and most recently volunteering with K2BSA at the National Jamboree in West Virginia earlier in July. I’d like to share with the club photos from these activities and let them know about other opportunities to mentor youth and how their radio hobby intersects with scouting. One such opportunity is an event called Jamboree on the Air. This is the largest annual international scouting event with scouts communicating with other scouts and ham operators all over the world. This year the event takes place October 21-22. I will be hosting a JOTA activation at D-Bar-A Scout Ranch in Metamora, MI and am looking for volunteers to assist.” Michael is the president of the Ford Amateur Radio League and an avid BSA volunteer.”
