World Jamboree on internet: latest news.
Wed, 8 Mar 1995 11:05:30 EST
The Jamboree management decided on the use of Internet and related
services. Summarized in my own words it reads as follows:
There will be three areas with an internet connection.
- the press centre, where recognized journalists may use these
services and will pay for the used time;
- the global development village where the world scout
environment network will use it in a dedicated activity;
- the computer activity centre of the amateur radio programme
area where scouts can "travel" over the internet and explore
There will be NO email services to and from the Jamboree. Electronic
greetings messages can be send, however, via the amateur radio packet
network. The Jamboree can be reached via PA6WSJ @ PI8WFL. News
bulletins will be send from this stations also to bbs's in the
category SCOUTS @ WW. Incoming messages will be forwarded to subcamps.
During daytime the packet-radio system will also operate in IRC mode.
To access this you will need to go via an amateur radio gateway to
Of course, you may enter in a live discussion with the scouts at the
station using a voice amateur radio contact.
It is NOT possible to directly connect to the Jamboree's computers
via telnet or the like. Whether IRC services will be available to us
is unclear at this time. We'll keep you posted abt developments.
More detailed information will be published soon in the next Jamboree
