      Don’t forget to add your JOTA activity to the Youth Sked page on ARRL website.  This will help folks find your operation.



      More information about JOTA can be found at: http://www.scouting.org/international/jota.html -and- http://www.arrl.org/FandES/ead/jota.html


      Again this year W1AW will be hosting local scouts on Saturday October 16th for JOTA.  The focus this year will be "merit badge in a day."  Mark Spencer, WA8SME, will be hosting the event.  He will be using a TX developed syllabus that will lead to the scouts achieving the radio merit badge during their participation in JOTA at the station.  There will be two settings for the training, 8 to 12 and 12 to 4.  So far there are about 20 scouts signed up to participate in the program.


      Anyone is welcome to stop by to participate in JOTA.



      I will be QRV from Bowmansville, PA on the Lancaster & Berks County line 10/15 - 10/16.  I will have my usual camping station set up consisting of Yaesu FT-897 with SGC tuner and a wire antenna in a tilted L configuration.  http://mywebpages.comcast.net/w3iz/tuner.html


      Operation will be mostly 40m SSB but will look at 20m & 17m for JOTA activity.

      Hi again:

      These were all very awesome ideas and I so love the
      enthusiasm in these ideas.  I love the suggestions and
      I would love more.  My problems are only keeping
      everyone entertained. So far, we have chili cookout,
      Pumpkin cutting and a road cleanup from the city park
      to the 2 miles and the highway crossing.   Please keep
      the GOOD SPIRITS and I hope to see you all on HF and
      20 M.  Take care
