radio scouting activities

Jamboree on the Air is the largest Radio Scouting event, indeed it is the largest event in the World Scout calendar. A group of Scout Leaders who were also licensed radio amateurs, had the idea following their experience with a large station at the 9th World Scout Jamboree in Sutton Park in 1957.
