Check with Edmund Scientific, they have a lot of Weather equipment
including kits. Call 609-573-6250 for a catalog. They have a lot of
stuff that scouts would love.

$20 each is very expensive for a crystal radio kit. Have you checked with
your local Radio Shack? They have kits available, may have to be special
