UK Radio Scouting special event station
- I thought as a Scout Leader and Radio Ham you may be able to help
publicise a UK Radio Scouting special event station.
Over the weekend of July 13 - 15, 2001 a special event station will
be operational from the Walesby Forest Scout Activity Centre.
The Scout centre is located in the Sherwood Frest area of
Nottinghamshire and the station will be operating as part of the
National "Robin Hood" Scout Fellowship Gathering, celebrating the
25th Anniversary of the Scout Fellowship, the adult support section
of Scouting in the UK.
The station has rceived permission to use a special, special event
call for this event and will be signing as GB25SF. We are especially
looking for contact with other Scout stations but we will try to work
all stations. I suspect that this call will be of special interest to
It is expected that the station will be QRV from about 21:00Z on
Friday, 13 July thru to 12:00Z on Sunday, 15 July.
It is planned to run 2 or 3 stations as follows:
80m or 40m
20m, 15m or 10m
and optionally 17m or 12m
Operational will be mainly on SSB with possibility of some CW.
