The weekend of October 19-20,2019 saw over 250 Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, parents and siblings participate in the 62nd Annual Jamboree on the Air. Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is the largest Scouting event in the world. It is held annually the third full weekend in October. JOTA uses amateur radios to link Scouts and hams from around the world, around the nation, and in our own communities.

This year hosted by Munsee District the event was held in the Watchung Reservation in Mountainside. Along with talking on the radio, Scouts had the opportunity to participate in activities like Tug of War, Knots, Cast Iron Chef, Lashing, Nature hikes and instruction in Signs Signals and Codes merit badge. Rags Buchner brought a mockup of the Apollo 11 lander that was a big hit with the crowd.

This year’s program was hosted by Munsee District and chaired by Gretchen Kellaway and Steve Flood. Providing the Ham Radio communication and instruction in the Radio Merit Badge was the Tri County Radio Association and president Paul Biener and his crew. Thanks to all the other volunteers that helped to make the weekend a great success.
