OK. Ther radio Amateurs of Northern Vermmont are doing a ham radio  
demos for a District (Addison and Chittenden Counties) Camporee at  
Branbury State Park in the Brandon Vermont area on Saturday 22  
October. We will be on 80-10 band conditions permitting and on APRS  
with my D700. We will use the club callsign, W1NVT. We will post  
periodic messages to SCOUTS as per this discussion. Looking forward  
to any messages and may be can setup a voice sked. TNX
