Welcome to Scout Radio and Electronics (SRESU) website.

The Scout Radio and Electronics Team (SRESU) is a Victorian based service team within Scouts Australia. Established to provide radio and electronics related activities and communications services for all sections from Joeys through to Rover Scouts.  More information click here…

Meetings held second Tuesday of each month (except January) and visitors are always welcome. Please note our meeting location may change through 2018… For more information please leave a message via our Contact Us page.

We support many scout events and also run training courses and workshops over the year.  These events provide formal training and skills development opportunities. New radio operators are assisted to develop and practice their skills (always handy in an emergency) and to learn how set up portable stations (good fun and handy for scouting and contest work). More information on out next training or activity weekend, please click on events to the right of this page >
