For units who would like to participate in JOTA, which is official I
understand, a good way to find someone who can provide access to the
airwaves is to contact a local HAM radio club. Clubs are literally
all over the world and most HAMs delight in showing off their
equipment and the communications possibilities.
A fair number of clubs make a special effort to set up a station in a
public place where Scouts (Girl Scouts/Guides are welcome) can come
and use equipment.
If you need to find clubs in your area the national radio associations
(ARRL in the USA) have listings and many have websites. I will help
if you need it.
In the Chicago area, my club the 6 meter club of Chicago will be
setting up a station, doing demonstrations and letting the Scouts use
the radios under licensed supervision. If you need more info, send me
or my wife a note.
Sue-z is a UC as well as a HAM.
