The Scouts Enjoyed Amateur Radio
It was International Scout Jamboree On The Air today and Surrey BC was represented by operators and stations from the Surrey Amateur Radio Club and the Surrey Emergency Program Amateur Radio. We operated from our Operations & Training Centre.
|Stan VA7NF and the HF Station|
Various ages and levels of Scouts circulated through five stations including:
- Basic Radio Theory
- Morse Code
- VHF/UHF including IRLP and Echolink
- HF (Shortwave)
- Handheld Radio practise
They spoke with stations including London, England and Colorado. This is an annual event in October and it is highly recommended as a community involvement project. Next year it is on the weekend of 19-21 October. More on this year's event in the November Communicator.
