Get them to make a tape measure beam antenna, then send them on a hunt.

Subject: [BITX20] Boy Scout activity event
I am looking for some ideas that can be used in a 30 minute window, or less, to introduce ham radio to a dozen scouts. My idea is to employ a few HTs in simplex mode, divide the the groups into 2 or 3 per team. Have each team search for something ( not defined) using the HTs and clues to where the something is located. Each team will have a licensed operator with them during the activity. Also this will be an evening event in a church activity building. Any ideas welcome. This is an opportunity to spark interest and get involved for the scouts.
