World Scout Frequencies
The Station operates on the World Scout Frequencies as often as possible. There is a personal fondness for
20 meters. When the camp is open during the summer (July through mid-August), the station can be heard in
the morning hours. Packet mailbox is on 145.010 Mhz.
Although capable, we do not currently operate CW.
3.690 & 3.940 MHz
7.090 & 7.190 MHz
Please note that the World Scout Frequencies changed July 2007. The International Amateur Radio Union
(IARU) changed its band plans to create space for more digital transmissions. Some Scout frequencies are
affected by this. Traditionally, Scout Frequencies were chosen in a segment where low-power stations are
transmitting (QRP).This allows Scouts to operate such stations from camp sites and still be able to
communicate with others. Some of these frequencies have changed over time. The amateur radio bands are
increasingly busy with competitions and nets. With the Scout frequencies chosen outside of the contest
segments as far as possible, Scout stations can operate undisturbed.
