Always nice to see new people enjoying the hobby
So, girl scouting is where youngsters get interested in ham radio? In my days boy scouts offered patches for swimming, cooking, making fire... I even got courage to taste a roasted snake chunk (yuck!)... ham radio, though, was impossible task to get a girl interested in. My ham radio hook was a Morse code cheating in math class (dah-dit-dah-dit, the answer is C for question 3). Combining POTA now and ham radio is a logical step, I might take up trekking and mountain climbing myself someday.
Anyway, kudos to KM9G, you know how to talk to young hams! Keep it up!!
KM9G, it's HAM RADIO, not HAM.

Scouting in responsible for a lot of youngsters getting into ham radio. My son's cub scout pack is now co-ed so I'm not sure how many girls are joining Girl Scouts anymore versus what is now just Scouts. I do believe the co-ed Scouts will result in more girls getting into ham radio.
