HB1 PfJAM is a scout special call sign, which was held on 27.07. on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the international scout center Kandersteg. - 07.08.2023 was issued and operated on short wave, in DMR and Echolink. Due to the location of Kandersteg in a high mountain valley, an operation over QO-100 is unfortunately not possible and also the spread on short wave is greatly restricted for DX.
The station will prefer to work on World Scout frequencies and we hope to reach many Scout camps that will take place this summer. The station is operated by a small international team (HB9EVT, PE1MEW and Herma and DF9IB) during the camp "Kander 100". In addition to demonstrating the amateur radio operation, activities will be offered that enable the participating scouts from over 50 countries to experience Radio Scouting.
The special call sign also allows the Scouts to speak at the microphone.
HB1 PfJAM is looking forward to many QSOs with sparkling scouts. For skeds you can reach us at hb100jam@gmail.com
