World Jamboree NA1WJ Final Report

We’ve pulled together the final report for the NA1WJ amateur radio operation at the 2019 World Scout Jamboree. Great numbers and incredible accomplishments by a superb team of amateur radio operators from Australia, Canada, Chile, Finland, Germany, Japan, Liechtenstein, Malaysia, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, USA, and Zimbabwe. We include a big thank you to all our sponsors.

You can find an overview table of numbers as well as the full report at NA1WJ 2019 Final Report.

Troop Program Feature — Radio

We’ve updated the Troop Program Feature — Radio with a slightly adjusted marine band radio section. Not only that, but we felt this would be a good time to remind you of this excellent resource for planning your troop meetings around radio.

Check it out at Troop Program Feature — Radio.

Thank you Christian Ingerslev, AB2SN, for your original work on the troop program feature and for this update.
