With your HT you could hit the SCHEART system and talk to SC, NC and GA from friday to sunday..
SCHEART | South Carolina Healthcare Emergency Amateur Radio Team

Ill be on HF with the scouts. Study up, and upgrade. Youll be able to talk world wide
Looks like we are “go” for setting up the Intermediate Exam at Boeing. They’ve been working on the material for a bit but I guess the test was updated? Not sure why it has taken so long.

Steve gave me a 7’ whip antenna for my 25W B-Tech HAM. It works well and the antenna will be a huge improvement over the little mag mount I have now.

Family ended up being priority over the scouts.
Heard from friends Camp Moultrie BSA was a mess.
Too much rivalry between Local Ham Groups.... TARC CARS CARA AARG DONT JOIN ONE...
But did hear good news from JOTA station on Johns Island. That station was not manned by any local ham groups, just local volunteers.

That's a shame to hear about Moultrie, I know the guy on Johns Island who hosts this every year, He's got a nice place out there.
