Oct. 15th Scouting Jamboree On The Air… J.O.T.A. This year we set up two stations at the American Legion. We used an Icom 7300 and a Icom 706.. supporting two OCF dipoles..

   Besides the JOTA event, we were besieged by special events, a couple of states having QSO Parties and other contests. But we were able to provide contact with some Scouts in Illinois.. the Scouts we had were in the Cub Scout age and just getting ready to “cross over” into Scouting.             Big THANK YOU to Dave KD9HJJ and Keith KS9WI for their participation and help in setting up and taking down the stations and providing insight to the visitors of what we were providing for the youth.
