Another successful Jamboree On The Air! This year we hosted 180 Scouts and Guides over the weekend, and the activities were widely enjoyed. This year’s activities were:
- Build a radio station – put up a mast, connect feedline to radio, check SWR is OK and make a contact on air
- Find a hidden “geocache” using a GPS – this was a new activity and an interesting challenge!
- Send morse code messages to each other via computer
- Outsmart each other with a classic game of Battleships played over the radio using phonetics – Charlie 5 is a hit!
- Make a contact with other scouting groups over the internet via Echolink
