Staged Activity Badges

How to earn your badge
The Northampton Scout Amateur Radio Group provides Radio Scouting and associated activities for the Scouts in Northampton and surrounding area.

The computer has supported the Radio Group for many years both as a  training aid in the production of our training material and also as a valuable tool used for decoding the many and varied signals heard on the amateur radio bands such as Radio Teletype, Packet Radio, Slow Scan Television and Weather Satellite transmissions. The interest in computers continues to grow as the internet develops and the associated technologies and skills are more and more important to the Radio Scouting programme.

The Digital Citizen staged activity badges offer a young person the opportunity of gaining an award appropriate to their individual level of knowledge. As they develop their IT skills they can progress onto the next stage, regardless of which section of the Movement they belong too.

The four badges are summarised below. Click on a badge to view the requirements in detail.
