Re: [Scoutradio] JOTA and third party traffic
- Point taken! Time for a bit of bilateral updating I think!
Most UK stations will be operating with a GB prefix in any case, but you
may hear some with GX or other letters which represent club callsigns being
used at special events, GS in Scotland, and at least one will operate as GN
from Northern Ireland!

We are City of Sunderland RAYNET Group who operate our own call sign of G0
SRG (Sunderland Raynet Group) in the North East of England.
However every year for the Sunderland Scouts in October and for the
Sunderland Guides in February we operate GX0 SRG. This is a fully
registered special event call sign and should be recognised as such. It
does not need GB in the title to meet the regulations.
We do allow both scouts and guides to transmit ' greetings messages' under
the supervision of a qualified amateur licence holder.
We will be looking for contacts across the world and the scouts and guides
gain tremendous pleasure and achievement from speaking to their colleagues
from other countries.
I do consider that every encouragement should be given to ensuring that the
necessary regulations take into account the nature of the event and that it
is in the safe hand of qualified amateurs.
Keep up the good work in supporting the youth organisations.
