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.

Ask an Astronaut a Question

During the 2019 World Scout Jamboree, the NA1WJ Amateur Radio Station will be in contact with the International Space Station as part of the ARISS Program. During the contact, which lasts about 10 minutes, we will have 10 Scouts speaking with an astronaut. That conversation will be a question and answer session, with the Scouts asking a list of 20 prearranged questions.

Thanks to everyone who provided their suggested questions for the astronaut. We received almost 40 questions through our online survey. We’ve edited that list down to 30 questions primarily by dropping or combining duplicate questions. 

We now need to narrow that list to the 20 that we’ll forward in advance to the International Space Station.

We’d like your vote on the top questions. Click the button to see the list of 30 questions and to vote on your top questions.
