In March, MWRS hosted 1st Frenchs Forest Cubs at our Terrey Hills HQ, and we ran our “intro to radio” program showing the Cubs a variety of things radio-related. Frenchs Forest cubs were a very enthusiastic troop and sent us a great report on the night:
Cub scouts by day, trainee secret agents by night!
Under the masterful supervision of ‘secret agent trainers’ at Manly Warringah Radio Society, our cub scouts learnt the history and practice of spycraft, unscrambling encrypted messages, erecting radio antennae, measuring radio signals, communicating through morse code and talking over the airwaves using the phonetic alphabet … all in one evening’s adventure for our cub scouts … many thanks to our hosts – Geoff and the team of volunteer radio enthusiasts at Manly Warringah Radio Society!
Our cub thoroughly enjoyed their introduction to radio … and so did the Cub Leaders
