Re: [scoutradio] Jota
- Great Bill!
I did receive an email from Don AE5K after posting my email. I hadn't read
his email before sending mine, but given the fact that the partial call and
QTH matched, I might have sent it anyway, with an adviso.
Thanks for the compliments on the call. It cost me 13 bucks to get a
callsign that was born on 1934. Not a bad deal by any standard. It's a
little shorter than WA4LTX; is prettier; but doesn't play as well on DX.
There's nothing like throwing an ((( X-RAY))) out there to catch their ear!
"CHARLIE" - "CHARLIE" - see... doesn't really inspire one.
Well I hope everybody had a great JOTA weekend. I, along with my
compatriots here in the West Central Florida Council BSA are going to have
to promote JOTA as never before. Our fall camporee(s) for all of our
districts will be taking place this weekend. I'm located in the Skyway
district and we'll be camping in the Green Swamp, in central Florida. Our
theme will be the Pioneering MB, and as such, the boys time will be filled
with making their way through the myriad of MB stations to complete their
MB. I am in charge of safety and first aid, so I can't stray too far from
the center of camp.
Typically our council shifts every other year, from Council Encampment (best
for radio) to District Encampment. For some reason, we are doing the
District thing - two years in a row. It really leaves no time for a
dedicated JOTA operation.
As I have seen from some of your operations, it appears that you've not only
dedicated a great amount of time to making your JOTA a GREAT EVENT, but
making it THE EVENT!
