Author: SJ22S 22nd WSJ Amateur Radio Station
Received from Linus SM5OUU: our group photo. Tnx!
After 10 very busy days we are closing down SJ22S, although HF operations and some Echolink are still QRV as I write. The closing ceremony yesterday evening was great but even the skies wept (understatement!) from sadness as the 22nd World Scout Jamboree comes to an end. More than 7,000 QSO’s have been made into some 140 countries. More details and pictures will be added after we finish “deconstruction”. We look forward to the 23rd WSJ in Japan, 2015. In the mean time we’ll try to operate from a number of other scouting events and of course see you all in JOTA!
On 3 August at 20:00 local time we hosted an Eyeball Sched for all licensed amateur radio operators on the Jamboree. Most are on this picture, taken by Barb VK6FPAX

Did you know…
- The last weekend before the crew assemble at the WSJ campsite we are still working hard to get everything ready. We should have paid more attention to the motto of our Founder Lord Baden Powell
- Some 10,000 QSL cards have been printed so we will need your help to give all of them a good destination.
- These letters will be mounted on the tallest antenna mast near our “shack”, a big tent where our radio equipment will be operationg 24/7. The letters are 100cm high!
- What is Kiara trying to tell me? Fortunately both sides have been painted
- On the camp site you can see them from far away. To find the shack, just follow the cables down from the tower to the tent and come in for an “eye ball QSO”. You’re also welcome to try a contact with another station via radio!
