Ofcom has announced that it will release so-called ‘special special’ call signs to support the Scouts’ centenary celebrations.
These call signs will be prefixed GB100, GB1OO and GB1O0, and have up to eight characters in total.
An example might be GB100CSD.
These call signs will be available for special events by Cub Scout district and higher level groups and must be endorsed by the District Commissioner or equivalent for higher level groups.
Ofcom has further clarified that events at the level of individual Cub Scout groups will continue to be limited to normal special event call signs.
