USS Salem Scouting Help Requested, 5/1/04

Disappointed that we had to cancel last week because of a lack of volunteers? We need your help this week to make the USS Salem scouting / amateur radio program successful.

We are expecting a big group of 182 scouts.

This could be a tough week to get volunteers because of Hosstraders, but before the excuses start flowing in, I’d like to remind everyone that Hosstraders is essentially over by noon on Saturday. Yahoo Maps says it’s less than 2 hours from Hosstraders to the USS Salem. You can do both!

If I can get 5-6 volunteers, we will run the Intro to Amateur Radio presentations and the HF & VHF/IRLP Demos concurrently in different parts of the ship. All activities are from 3:00pm to 6:00pm on Saturday (5/01/04). (All volunteers should be prepared to arrive no later than 2:45 to assist with setup.)

I’m hoping for a gregarious mix of seasoned and new volunteers. Previous experience is not required; our versatile volunteers can train on the fly. Please email me ASAP at if you will be there! (I have to let the ship know by Friday morning whether we can accommodate!)
