RE: [Scoutradio] Invitation to join the EuroJam Amateur Radio team...
I have just been appointed to the Brownsea Island events team as Stage Manager. This does mean I will be fairly busy, especially late afternoon and evening.
However I will try and get to the radio shack whenever possible. I was at Eurojam on H & S and managed to make it to the shack there a few times and enjoyed the hospitality, especially when a birthday cake arrived!!
I look forward to meeting the team on the island and also making contact with Hylands Park .
