Here’s a special treat for those contacting Boy Scouts and Girl Guides during this week’s 2014 Jamboree On the Air (JOTA).  AMSAT has sent a type of “twitter” message to the FUNcube-1 satellite addressed to scouts and girl guides around the world.  This would be an excellent message to share with the scouts and girl guides visiting your station.
