In the News this week we hear about the history of Jamboree On The Air, the largest annual activity organised by the World Organisation of Scouting Movements that introduces half a million Scouts and Guides in over one hundred countries involving some ten thousand amateur radio stations to Amateur Radio every year, 60 years this year and going strong.

Also in the news we hear about Summits on the Air and World Wide Flora and Fauna activations, have news about how to engage the Maker Community with Amateur Radio, news from around the hobby and more.

Thanks for joining us for this edition of Amateur Radio News for Radio Amateurs and Shortwave Listeners, produced since 1931 across VK6 and beyond. I'm your host this week, Onno VK6FLAB.
