Can someone or club in the Pittsburgh, PA area help with this?  Please contact Ed at cubmaster90@gmail.com

I am the Cubmaster for Pack 90 in Forest Hills. We have 55 Cub Scouts and I'm also looking for guests to visit and make presentations. Would you be interested and willing to give a presentation on Morse Code to the scouts on Friday, Nov. 20? Our Pack meeting is at the Forest Hills Presbyterian Church from 7-8:30 pm. Let me know!

I'm doing a series of guest speakers who are talking and demonstrating methods of communication before cell phones. For my Sept meeting I invited a Civil War reenactor who talked about communicating via drums and bugles (a demonstrated both!). Next month I have signal corp guy coming to talk and demo communication via flags. For Nov. I'd love to have someone talk/demo morse code.

How did you make out with this?
Just curious...I am a scout leader for Troop 92 here in NJ.
I used to travel to your neck of the woods several times a month. Stayed in Coreopolis, had many customers in the outskirts of Pittsburgh.
Keep in touch with that flag signaling guy. The new merit badge for the troop includes both a morse requirement AND a semaphore requirement.   I am currently getting ready to chat with the local radio club to help teach the RADIO merit badge to our scouts. I've done it myself in the past, but it helps to have lots of help!
