      Subject: Scout Radio Stations in UK

      Has part of the Millennium Celebrations it is the intention the UK Scout
      Association that as many of the membership as possible will be in camp over
      the weekend of May 26 - 29. The Central Nottinghamshire District, along
      with many others, are planning a camp where over 600 young people will be at
      Sherbrooke, our District Camp site in the Sherwood Forest area, as part of
      these celebrations.
      Among the many activities planned will be a Special Event Station where,
      using the call sign GB2KSC, we hope to be able to introduce many of the
      young visitors to Amateur Radio. We will be QRV from about 08:00 GMT on
      Saturday, May 27 through to about 11:00 GMT on Monday, May 29. We expect to
      have 2 stations operating for most of this time variously using the 80, 40,
      20, 17, 15 and 10 Metre bands. In addition to our station it can be expected
      that many of the Millennium camps will also be running radio stations. The f
      ollowing is a list of some
      of the Scouts stations expected to be on air:
      GB2PWS - Parkwood Scouts

      GB2KSC, and I guess any other stations, would welcome contacts with Scouts
      from around the world and would appreciate any help you can give in
      publicising our activity.
