32nd G&D Scouts visit the Radio Shack

The 32nd G&D Scout Group were at the Scout Radio Club last night to work on their Communicators Badge. They completed a range of radio related activities that included sending a greetings message over the airwaves, an introduction to Morse code, the Phonetic Alphabet, radio wave propagation, the rules covering the use of Amateur Radio and how to log and report radio reception.
They also tried their hand at coding and decoding “secret” messages using the Scout Code Wheel.

We all did it!

At the end of the evening all the participants had completed the required work and were awarded their Communicators Badge.
Feedback from the Group members and their leader indicated that everyone had a lot of fun and enjoyed the experience.
