On the 17th of October 2015 Durham and District amateur Radio society hosted a JOTA event in association with Framwellgate scout group. At the event we had both scouts and cubs all of whom were absolutely fantastic on the radio! The cubs seemed to enjoy the morse mini-teaching session which was done my Ernest Coleby (M5ERN) they were transfixed at how well morse could travel around the world, most of them were able to tap out a few words and even their names, they did very well for people who had never used the equipment and the language before.
We didn't just have morse on the go, we also had stations operating on VHF/UHF/HF all of which had contacts. The HF (high frequency) station did tremendously getting contact1s all over the world in places many thousands of miles away such as; south america, Spain and MORE!.
In conclusion the event was brilliant it was throughly enjoyed by both the attendees from the radio club and also there scouts. We are looking forward to next years event!
