How can I support or get involved with Radio Scouting?

If you are interested in supporting or getting involved with Radio Scouting, here are some steps you can take:

Join a local scouting organization: If you are not already a member of a scouting organization, consider joining one that offers Radio Scouting programs. This could be the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts USA, or a national scouting organization in your country.

Obtain an amateur radio license: To participate in Radio Scouting activities, you will need to have an amateur radio license. The license will allow you to operate a radio and communicate with other scouts around the world. You can find information about obtaining a license from organizations like the American Radio Relay League (ARRL).

Participate in Radio Scouting events: Many scouting organizations host Radio Scouting events, such as Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA), which is an annual event that allows scouts to communicate with other scouts around the world via amateur radio. Check with your local scouting organization to find out about upcoming Radio Scouting events.

Volunteer with a Radio Scouting group: There are many organizations dedicated to promoting Radio Scouting, such as the World Scout Bureau's Global Support Centre for Radio Scouting. Consider volunteering with one of these organizations to help support Radio Scouting activities in your community.

Promote Radio Scouting: Spread the word about Radio Scouting to others in your community. Encourage other scouts, amateur radio operators, and community members to get involved with Radio Scouting activities.
