RARS and Scouting

Amateur radio has been a part of Scouting since 1918 with the inauguration of the Wireless merit badge. The Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) is the national association for Amateur Radio in the US with currently over 161,000 members. The ARRL was a key contributor in establishing those early requirements and in pulling together that first merit badge pamphlet. This support of Scouting has expanded in recent years to include Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) activities.

The Raleigh Amateur Radio Society (RARS) shares the interests and goals of the ARRL and we want to help local Scouts whenever possible. Whether the Scouting group is small (like a den or patrol) or large (like a pack, troop or a crew), RARS has a lot to offer those Scouts and Scout leaders interested in Amateur Radio.

The links below will provide information for both Scouting leaders and amateur radio operators (AROs) who are interested in the Radio and Scouting program.Whether you are an adult volunteer/Scout leader (Scouter) interested in our assistance or a RARS member interested in helping Scouts with your ARO skills and experience, please contact our RARS Scouting Coordinator for more information or to make requests.
