Radio Club visits the 59th Beavers

The Radio Club visited the 59th Beavers tonight and as well as having a great time we helped the Beavers to do badge work for their Explore Activity, Communicator Activity and Personal Challenge Award Badges.

Everyone (Beavers and Radio Ops.) enjoyed the evening with all the Beavers working hard to achieve their Badges. Well done!

Scout Communicator Badge Night

Tonight we had a very successful evening where the first of two groups of Scouts from the 85th Greenock and District Group, from Inverkip, achieved their Communicator Badges and enjoyed lots of fun radio related activities.

Look what arrived in the Post today!!!

Club treasurer, Kai, MM1AUF was a lucky winner in the Prize Draw held by CQ Scotland at the recent Braehead Rally.
Her prize was a goodie bag jam-packed full of BBC Micro:bit micro-computers, components, resource books and guides.

This will provide lots of project work for the club and hopefully engage our local scouts with amateur radio and electronics.
We would like to express our thanks to CQ Scotland for the kits and look forward to incorporating them in our activities.

The CQ SCOTLAND GROUP is a non profit community group introducing electronics and amateur radio to the next generation. This is achieved through group building events and the distribution of free electronic project kits. Their aim is to inspire the next generation to gain their foundation amateur radio license or spark an interest in electronics, that could lead to worthwhile careers.
