Hi,
I have been asked to come up with a radio system plan for a new scout camp. We plan to put in a HAM shack for the scouts to earn the Radio Merit Badge, and participate in Jamboree on the Air. The need that I have questions about is about setting up a radio system for camp management. I expect we will have around 20 radios, and they are spread across 3,000 acres, with most in a central area of camp. The camp is wooded, hilly, and has metal buildings. I would appreciate any help that I can get selecting a radio system that will work across the camp.

This 2016 discussion may provide some useful ideas on legal options for what you wish to do.
