      Hello fellow HAMs and Scouters!
      I know many of you are ramped up for the National Jamboree right now and that's good but I wanted to let those in the western U.S. know about Operation On Target that occurs later this morning (Sat., 7/16).  Scouts & others will be signaling from mountain peak to mountain peak with mirrors and will be using 2m or cell phones to confirm flash contacts (see www.ontargetbsa.org for more details). 
      Every year we try to get others to participate by signaling peaks in their area (some are visible from metro areas or towns) where ever you may be down in the valley.  These are BONUS/surprise contacts that the teams didn't know that they were going to get and they create extra excitement.  If you have some time between 10 AM - 1 PM MDT today please look at the peak registry (see link below) and if there are teams in your area jump in.  The frequency info and links are listed below (sorry I'm not sure what repeaters they will be using in CA or AZ - the coordinators in those states didn't provide them to me). 
      Sorry for the late notice but most teams didn't register until Thursday or yesterday (we jumped from ~30 to 80 teams) and I didn't want to send out anything if we were below 50 teams.  Also Arizona holds their On Target on the 3rd Saturday in September (17th) and surrounding states will probably participate then as well so if you can't participate today put the September date on your calendar.  Arizona has their own website at http://ontarget.mesavarsity.org/ .  Arizona only has a few teams out today to see if we can chain up between AZ and UT &/or CA.
      The weather looks better this year than it has for the past several years so we may be able to break some flashing records.
      Gotta run!  I'm off to Bountiful Peak.
      Thank you & 73 de N7TEK!
