Boy Scouts Morse Code Interpreter Badge

The Boy Scouts of America released the Morse Code Interpreter Strip, an official patch for Scouts and Scouters who can demonstrate their ability to “speak” this special language.

Scouts and Scouters can earn the new Morse code interpreter strip by completing all three requirements: Carrying on a five minute conversation in Morse code at a speed of at least five words per minute, correctly copying a two minute message sent in Morse code at a minimum of five words per minute (copying means writing the message down as it is received) and sending a 25 word written document in Morse code at a minimum of five words per minute.

For more information, here is a link to the announcement on the ARRL web site.

Wonder if Boys Scouts Canada offers the same badge?
