Fill in cards to be sent as confirmation of the contact and brush up on your geography by plotting their position on the display maps.

We have the assistance of the Horsham Amateur Radio Club, with the provision of some of the equipment and operators to back up the Radio Scouting Amateurs.

To make the contacts interesting, please bring along brief details of something you would like to talk about, for example: description of your group and their activities, your hobbies and/or other interests. You can also list down any questions you would like to ask the other Scout stations on the air.
