Why I got into ham radio

Amateur radio offers a chance to learn new technological skills, but for me, I was keen to use it in my Scouting, JOTA-JOTI is the world’s largest digital Scout event taking place online and over the air, started with a foundation licence learning that I would need a full licence to run an event, or to supervise young people so they could get on the air.
