I hope it’s acceptable to post little appeals for help from stations by regular SOTA folks involved in the Scout movement when we’ve an evening of amateur radio communications organised? This is inspired by the help given to Tom M1EYP’s pupils by the SOTA community.
As a Scout leader I sometimes demonstrate amateur radio to groups of young people. Tomorrow evening with Wolverhampton West Explorers is one such and my first time doing radio at their HQ.
All being well Tom M6GGZ and I will be on somewhere close to the Scout frequencies of either 7.090 or 7.190 MHz between 1930z and 2030z. If it works, and a few of you find him or me, we’ll change to M0YDH/A and hope to get the Explorers passing greetings messages.
These Explorers go mountain walking for the weekend so hilltop /P amateur radio may be interesting to them… One can but try.
Anyone interested in listening out for us and fielding those nervous greetings messages from 14-18 year olds?
PS Jamboree on the Air is 19/20 October [worldwide] this year.
