Radio Scouting is the intersection of Scouting and amateur radio. As such it introduces Scouts to the fun, technology and magic of amateur radio. It does this through the power of the world’s largest Scouting event, Jamboree on the Air, with over 700,000 Scouts engaged in connecting with one another through amateur radio the third weekend of October.
If you aren’t yet a boy scout, that’s ok! Get in contact with one of our merit badge counselors to see if they can schedule a visit for your cub scout pack!
