JOTA 2005 Station OH2SGF

OH1RX in association with local girl scouts (Salon Leirisiskot) and boy scouts (Salon Leiriveikot ) was on air in the international scout amateur radio acitivity weekend 15.-16.10.2005

We signed as OH2SGF and 22 second boys and girls made their very first HF QSO (contact) as second operator on Saturday the 15th October. There was great excitment in the radio shack, when the 1st "sweat QSO was finally made a ok !

Furthermore the children were taugt more code (CW), basics about radio propagation and radio technology.

Inspired by this acitivity, OM Leo OH1RG from Turku, kindly donated his roof top tower (8m) and a tribander yagi to be erected by the scouts for their own radio station.
The novice training course aiming at an own amateur operating license is planned to be held in spring 2006.
We are looking for more young voices on air during 2006 !
