Jota at Gilwell LogoWelcome to the website of the
Gilwell Park Amateur Radio Station

This website will be the hub of all the information during the Jamboree on the Air weekend, from Gilwell Park Scout Activity Centre. For the rest of the year it will still contain information about the station, and when we are likely to be active - however certain elements like the webcams and the live frequencies won't be running when the station is closed.

Radio Orienteering outside the Gidney CabinWinter Camp 2015 at Gilwell Park

Over the weekend of the 9 - 11 January 2015 3,000 Scouts and 500 Leaders will be enjoying a weekend camp at Gilwell Park for the annual Winter Camp. Activities will include all those usually found at a Scout camp, including archery, climbing, shooting, camp fires... and a few not usually considered at this time of year, including white water rafting on the Olympic kayak course at the nearby Lee Valley.
The Technology Zone will be in full action this weekend too, with a large computer Interrnet Cafe, the amateur radio station - operating from the Gidney Cabin - and radio orienteering. We will also be providing video content to a large screen in the Lid for the discos on Friday and Saturday evening, and some of this may be streamed via the BATC television streamer. Look out for GB2GP or M0AEU on the streamer.
