6th visit to the Radio Club

Posted on

The Radio Club welcomed Scouts from 6th Greenock and District Scout Group, together with their leader Mathew. They were visiting the shack to complete their communication badge. Prior to arrival the Scouts had completed most of the requirements, as detailed in the radio club workbooks, ably assisted by their leader.

All participants enthusiastically played Morse Code Battleships and Bomb Disposal games as well as a number of other computer-based games, designed by various members of the radio club, to test and enhance their knowledge of Amateur Radio.

Additionally, the remaining requirement for the badge were completed i.e. tuning a radio, sending messages over the airwaves and logging stations received.

They were the first group to use the new electronic logging and mapping software. All of which was voted a great success by the group.

A most enjoyable and fun evening was had by all. Thanks again to Mathew for all his hard work in preparing the group and the Scouts for their enthusiasm.

The Scout Radio Club would like to thank Tim Makins EI8IC for the mapping software and Inverclyde Community Fund for additional funding.
