Amateur HAM Radio and Boy Scouts and Girl Guides Canada

Amateur HAM Radio and Boy Scouts and Girl Guides Canada

I typically hear Amateur HAM Radio operators complaining about many things, however rarely taking action or involved in change.  So as a result of a conversation I felt needed investigation I accepted it as a new intuitive.

The topic of why is Amateur HAM Radio not included in the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides curriculum?

The claims was as follows,  but how true this claim is, is uncertain :
  • Boy Scouts and Girl Guides are not allowed to have technology in the curriculum

I am optimistic with the start and this public intuitive here that many will copy this public project that is outlined.

I have since followed up with the Executive Director of the Boy Scouts Canada.

Mission Statement ::

Making Scouts Canada bigger and more vibrant than ever before.

At Scouts Canada, our Mission is clear: to help develop well-rounded youth, better prepared for success in the world. We do this by enabling thousands of young Canadians to engage in safe, youth-led, adventurous programs in hundreds of communities across this great country. As Volunteers and staff supporting these programs, our aim is to ensure Scouting remains vibrant and continues to expand its reach: providing more youth with an opportunity to learn and to experience things at Scouts that they cannot experience elsewhere.

In order for Scouting in Canada to be as impactful as possible, we have identified five key areas of focus and associated measures of success that will guide our work over the next 3 years.

  1. Ahh but the real question is when they are on an adventure, do they take a cell phone? Will it work in the mountains? Amateur radio is a viable emergency communications capability when on a canoe trip or a hike and the cell phone no longer works. It is not so much a technology program as a safety feature and an extention of the whole JOTI Concept. Perhaps that is the way to market it to them?
