CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – The 60th International Jamboree on the Air is happening this weekend.
Jamboree on the Air is a chance for Boy and Girl Scouts throughout the world to talk to each other using amateur radio.
Boy Scouts at Camp Stambaugh in Canfield gathered around a radio Saturday morning. They were able to connect with some people in England.
“It’s kind of a nice thing for kids to get unplugged a little bit and kind of back to a very reliable form of communication that is very helpful in various disasters,” said George Meleski of 20/9 Amateur Radio Club.
