ATBSG13 is the special callsign issued for the 9th Asia Pacific Regional / Internet Jamboree 2013 to be held on 3 & 4 August 2013.
VU2RBI, VU2TCU, VU3KRT & VU3OWL will be operating this station from Bharat Scouts & Guides HQ, New Delhi.
The Air-Internet Jamboree is a regional event established in 2004 in which Scouts & Guides contact each other by means of Amateur Radio and through the Internet. Having a live conversation with a fellow Scouts & Guides in some other place in the world gives the same excitement like having a normal Jamboree on the land. Just like the normal Jamboree, the Air-Internet Jamboree is also an event during which Scouting & Guiding experiences are exchanged and ideas are shared. It's great and unique opportunity for Scouts & Guides of all age ranges to communicate with each other as if they are nearby when in actual fact they are all in their own countries. Indeed, Radio Scouting & Guiding eliminates the distances and fosters a closer relationship of the worldwide Scouting & Guiding movement.
Look out for this station in the morning hours mainly on 14.160 MHz.
