10th Torbay Sea Scouts

Communicator Activity BadgeIn November and December, members of Riviera ARC assisted the 10th (Torbay) Sea Scouts in preparing for their Communicator Activity Badge. The Sea Scouts were given a talk about Amateur Radio and a demonstration of HF radio and logging procedures. Among the requirements for the badge, the scouts needed to be able to recognise UK callsigns, know the phonetic alphabet and some Q codes. Many of the children had the opportunity to pass a ‘greeting’ to another of our club members on VHF.

Riviera ARC are pleased to be able to support community activities such as this and it was rewarding to work with these well-behaved and keen-to-learn youngsters.
