Jamboree On The Air.

Over a weekend in October each year a world-wide “Jamboree On The Air” takes place in which amateur radio operators install equipment at Scout and Guide camps or halls and make contact with other Groups to promote an interest in this hobby. Great Lakes Radio Club-members regularly take part in this activity.

Working Bees.

Repeater sites require periodical maintenance of equipment and environs. This is carried out by working bees arranged at meetings. It is a great learning experience and a chance to share in the camaraderie of working towards a common goal. The other activities listed are self-explanatory.
