On 12 July the 43rd Scout Group was visited by 4 of ODARS members who demonstrated CW and SSB modes. The scouts had some hands-on experience of Morse code and phonetic alphabetic as part of their Communication badge. The scouts were split into two groups and each scout practised Morse code and was shown the workings of a radio. ODARS set up two radio stations for the event, one to demonstrate and listen to CW QSOs and one for SSB listening. All the scouts showed lots of interest in the event and they did very well, in particular when practising with Morse code.
