Radio Group receives World Radio Friendship Award

The amateur radio website QRZ.com recently awarded the Greenock and District Scout Radio Group the World Radio Friendship Award.
This award is issued solely based on communications between QRZ users. The award was achieved by successfully completing on-air contacts, during our Friday night meetings in the HQ Radio Shack, with at least 25 members of QRZ from around the world. The award celebrates QRZ’s 25th Anniversary and recognises our Group’s achievements in amateur radio.
