@ World Scout Jamborees
Amateur radio stations have been set up at each World Scout Jamboree since 1957. They provided a live-link from the Jamboree to the home countries of the participants, directly over short-wave radio. For many years, this was the only direct contact back home a Scout could have.
The World Jamboree radio stations provided a glimpse of the Jamboree live to other Scouts world-wide as part of the Join-in-Jamboree programme. Ths station team also ran daily programmes for the Scouts on the Jamboree site. To many of them, their first encounter with short-wave radio.
From 27 July till 7 August 2011, the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Rinkaby in Sweden was on the air with SJ22S.
The station offered an exciting radio-scouting programme to the Jamboree participants with several different workshops. Of course, the latest camp news was available through the operators and scouts manning the station.
