RE: [Scoutradio] JOTA the 16th
Don’t forget to add your JOTA activity to the Youth Sked page on ARRL website. This will help folks find your operation.
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.

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
