October 19/20: Jamboree On The Air


The next Jamboree on the Air is on October 19 and 20. 

The Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is an annual Scouting event that uses amateur radio to link Scouts around the world, around the nation, and in your own community. Held on the third full weekend of October each year, this worldwide jamboree requires no travel, other than to a nearby radio amateur’s ham shack. Many times the hams will come to you by setting up at a Scout camporee, or perhaps they already have a ham shack at your council’s camp. There are many ways to get your Scouts involved in JOTA.

SOARA has received a request from a Cub Scout troop that would like some SOARA members to assist their pack in demonstrating Amateur Radio.  If interested, please contact Michael Frank at KJ6QIK at his club e-mail address.
