RE: [scoutradio] JOTA
- Good evening Alan..Yep, I'm here too.. I've seen several replies, but figured I'd add my two cents in.
A groupd of local hams in the area have been putting on Jota for the West Central Florida Council for the past few years. In 1998 we hosted K2BSA/4 at our local Encampment, with an impressive showing.. We covered 80m to 440mhz, with at least 15 different rigs (Some rcv only.. Had some SSTV recieve, as well as GOES satellites.)And hopefully I'll be working Jambo.. I've put my application in.. Now to hear back!!73,Chris SchwabN4BSA

Subject: [scoutradio] JOTACQ CQ CQ DE KB3DHC CQ CQ CQHello is anyone there. This is one dead list or there is too much QRM on my phone line to get e-mail from this list. Hopefully it just that this list is dead because if I play with the phone lines my dad would strangle me.Well we could start talking about JOTA 2000 (October 20-22). It is a little more than 6 months away. When does information come out of National anyway? Does anyone have any good JOTA programs that their club puts on for the scouts? How many stations do your group use? Activities (the ARRL should have a JOTA list to share ideas)? This could be the best time to start planning .On another note how about 2001 Jamboree, does anyone want to sign up for staff? I was appointed a 3rd assistant scoutmaster position and am planning to volunteer a few of the days. Also on a jambo note does anyone know of a inexpensive ($50>) Solar 12V charger on the market? I am planning to bring a car battery to charge my HT batteries and other rechargeable batteries with a MAHA desktop charger. I know if I charge many batteries and run a small light & possibly a small fan it will deplete the battery before the Jambo ends.FRS at the Jamboree. You want to talk about crowed channels at camporees, you probably won't be able to get one word in except at night.Pick at least one topic.Hopefully this will get some conversation going.73'sAlan Stumpf, KB3DHC
