2017 marks 60 years of Jamboree On The Air! Scouts and Cubs get the opportunity to contact others in Scouting around the world using 2 way radio, reaching as far away as Antarctica.


Over the weekend Scouts will get the opportunity to complete option 1 from the Communicator Activity Badge. This includes logging 25 different amateur radio stations, learning how to tune a simple communications receiver and the simple terms of how radio waves travel around the world, learn the phonetic alphabet and so much more!
