Welcome to the Scout Electronics Team website.
We are a specialist activity team within the Scouts SA Adventurous Activities section, focusing on STEM and innovation through electronic-based activities such as robotics, radio technology and project kits. One of our current projects is the Edison educational robot – a LEGO brick compatible programmable robot for teaching programming, coding and robotics.
We also support and promote the largest annual international Scouting Event – JOTA JOTI.
Our program is currently being developed from the ground up and will be officially launched at the 25th Australian Jamboree, to be held in Tailem Bend, South Australia in January 2019.
More details on the Youth Program page.
Our secondary function is to provide robust radio communications for Scouting and Community Events, which we achieve with a commercial UHF radio system.
We maintain a fleet of 50+ handheld and 12 mobile commercial radios which operate on 2 portable repeaters. These repeaters are usable South Australia wise and can be located in the harshest remote environment due to their robust water and dust resistant Pelican cases, 100+AH batteries and solar panels.
Our radios are Tait TP8100 and Icom IC-400PRO.
