GB75RH will be active from the International Scout and Guide Camp in the Walesby Forest Scout Activity Centre in Sherwood Forest until 3 August. Activity is to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the site’s acquisition by the City of Nottingham Scouts. Amateur radio has long featured in these camps, which are usually held every 4 or 5 years, and this year a station was again one of the many activities available to the young people attending the camp. With a large international team of 17 operators, the stations will be able to demonstrate the best of amateur radio to the many young visitors attending. Amateur radio expanded the international nature of the camp with 5 HF stations operating on all bands from 80-10 metres, plus one station operating on 6m and 2m.
