Reviews for K2BSA Amateur Radio Association
K2BSA serves as a vital bridge between Boy Scouts of America and amateur radio. These organizations all foster exciting opportunities to learn and expand horizons of youth and adults alike. They exemplify service to others. The Radio Merit Badge was my youngest son's favorite. That led him and myself to get our Amateur Radio License and we're continuing to learn and want to pursue how we can use this hobby to help the community in case of emergencies and other needs.
