During some amateur radio contacts in
spring 1993 between the Funkergilde of the VCP-Bremen with DF0VCP,
radio-clubstation, and Reinhard, DH6DAO, a DPSG-scout from Soest
together an idea was born, to create an - for all interest - open
circle by amateur radio, which turns of course to all German scouts
with an own amateur radio licence. This was the beginning to the
"deutsches Pfadfindernetz", the "German-Scout-Net" (GSN).
One time in a month the circle meet themself on the hf-band (80m) - by
changing participation - to give scout-(radio-)news, to talk about
common activities and to exchange general informations.
By the wish, to meet the "anonymous" talk-partner personally, there
grow the idea of an "eyeball-sked", a weekend-meeting. So in may 1994 a
first informal meeting with scouts from all three German scout
associations of the RdP take place in a cottage close to Braunfels
In the following years these weekend-meetings one a year went on -
mostly the second weekend in may.
In the time the yearly meetings get more and more meaning, and for the
NJO's (National-JOTA-Organizer) this became an expanded platform and
support for their work. Up today the following themes are included to
- Exchanging of informations and mutual meeting
- presentation of an amateur radio-/internet- theme
- General plannings to JOTA/JOTI and other national radio
- run an amateur radio station / internet
One participation group takes over the planning of the next meeting by
organizating board and lodging close to their home-towns an a visiting
to the town and/or special areas.
