Exercise Blue Ham will be taking place on the 17/18 Mar and on the 13/14 Oct 2018 (24hrs) on 5Mhz only. Air, Army and Sea Cadets and Staff will be able to communicate with Radio Amateurs using Cadet Radio Call-signs (Three Letters and two numbers) . Details to be given over the air is Your Signal Report, QRA Locator, TX power, Antenna type and direction. Cadets are not allowed to give Personal Names or Geographical Locations over the air so only the first four digits of the QRA Locator will be given.
Some cadets may have never even heard of Amateur Radio before so bear with them if they are a bit slow with replies. Cadets will use the Collective call-sign of AC not CQ.
