JOTA - Delaware
Freedom Trail District “Keeper of the Flame” 2004 Fall Camporee at the duPont Granogue estate in Montchanin, DE will be held on October 15-17 and will include JOTA as an event on Saturday.
JOTA will be using my callsign, WB3LGC, and possibly the callsigns of KC3AM, and WB3FUP. We will operate in and around the BSA frequencies of 20m and 40m. We will be on the air during the Saturday morning and afternoon events (9:00am – Noon and 1:30pm – 4:30pm). We may be on the air for extended hours if time (and manpower) permits.
Over 300 Webelos and Boy Scouts are registered for the event.

BTW, The staff for the Camporee wasn’t thinking JOTA. They asked me to set up an astronomy “star party” after the Saturday night campfire. I made sure JOTA was added to the events and I will include my telescope at the JOTA location to look at sunspots (the way things are going, the sun may not have any…). Yes, the telescope has a special filter. (In the evening, the moon sets shortly after sunset, on the east coast. So, it also makes a wonderful weekend to look up and enjoy the stars, too.)
