EXERCISE BLUE HAM

Exercise Blue Ham was conceived to develop Cadet radio operators High Frequency (HF) radio communications abilities and to incorporate a spirit of competition.

By competing, the Cadets are using equipment in a real-world scenario.

The exercise will see the establishment of voice and data links between Cadet and Amateur Radio stations in the UK and Europe via HF NVIS propagation.

Operators will gain experience of different styles of radio operation whilst instilling good-will and confidence among users of the 5 MHz (Shared) Band.
