The evening tested the basic principles of Radio communications the cadets had learnt in their basic radio communications course.
With the cadets stationed in both their respective squadron buildings, the cadets used the art of code breaking, teamwork and Communication, some key principles for radio usage within the Air Cadets, to try and seek out and hit the other squadron’s ships.
The cadets traded hits and misses in a fun night filled with tension and excitement which ended with Malmesbury squadron coming out on top winning by six hits to three.
Cadet Nikita Tzymbalov, from Malmesbury cadets thoroughly enjoyed the evening commenting "I'd used radio's before at Badminton, but tonight was really fun and you needed to work as a team to reach the objective."
Flying Officer Jonathan Wakefield said “The cadets at Malmesbury really enjoyed the evening; you could feel the excitement and tension in their faces and voices”. I would like to thank Flying Officer Ollie Dalton and Pilot Officer Jack Sergeant for planning and running such an excellent activity”.
The cadets use radio's in many situations during their time in the Air Training Corps, from car parking to Badminton Horseless Trials, radio's are important, and fun too.
