Jamboree on the Air – October 20-22, 2017

Jambo on the air

Jamboree on the Air is an annual Scouting event that uses amateur radio to link Scouts around the world, across the country and in your own community. There are no official hours, so you have the whole weekend to make JOTA contacts. The event officially starts Friday evening during the JOTA Jump Start and runs through Sunday evening.
Who: Scouts and Venturers of any age, plus their families.
How: Once at the ham radio station, the communication typically requires speaking into a microphone and listening on the station speakers. However, many forms of specialized communication can also take place, such as video communication, digital communication using typed words on the computer screen transmitted by radio, communication through a satellite relay or an earth-based relay (called a repeater), and many others.

In person group  – If you would like to participate in a group experience on October 21 go to the Watchung Reservation Loop area, look for Pack 47 Cubmaster Gretchen Kellaway. pack47rahway@yahoo.com
