In 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.
