Last Minute Instructions for Jambo Traffic???
- Can we get a quick review of how to address traffic in
and out of the Jamboree via k2BSA and/or NTS.
Boys Life had a nice explanation of the subcamp
system. How should we format addresses on our traffic.
Do You Yahoo!?

The latest info in the Jamboree newsletter is that K2BSA will be on
the "Standard" scout frequencies. I would guess this means the same
freq. used for JOTA etc.
They also gave the local repeater info if you are in the area. I do not
have the newsletter up at the moment so I do not know the 2M freq.
They will be conducting Radio merit badge and No-Code Tech Classes and
tests at the Jamboree.

The format for addressing a piece of US mail to a scout is:
Mailing Address at the Jamboree
Scouts Full Name
Jamboree Troop XXXX
Subcamp No. XX
2005 National Scout Jamboree
Bowling Green, VA 22428-troop#

usually the first two digits of the Jamboree Troop number.
For example, Jamboree Troop number 1234 is in subcamp 12; Jamboree
troop 411 is in subcamp 4 (the leading zero is assumed for a three
digit Jamboree troop number.)
Big caveat - It's the Scouts JAMBOREE troop number, not the troop
number of his regular troop at the church or school in his home
town. Thus be leery, if you see mail addresses to a two digit troop
