One of the districts in West Jordan Utah is holding a Radio merit badge
class this Saturday, 2/17/2001. After the class the Scouts will be trying
to make contact on the following 10m, 20m, 40m (& maybe 15m depending on
propagation) JOTA phone frequencies at 11:00 AM MST (1:00 PM EST):

If possible we would like to talk to other Scouts (& HAMs) on the air. We
hope we can link up with you on the air! Call KK7JO (questions? Send him

Here is a list of the JOTA frequencies:
BAND Phone (MHz) CW (MHz)
80m 3.740 & 3.940 3.590
40m 7.270** 7.030
20m 14.290 14.070
17m 18.140 18.080
15m 21.360 21.140
12m 24.960 24.910
10m 28.390* 28.190
*The World Scout Bureau has changed the 10 meter phone calling
frequency to 28.390. The CW calling frequency will remain 28.190.
**The traditional JOTA frequency on 40-meter is 7.290. This frequency
is published in the "Considerate Operator's Frequency Guide" as the
AM calling frequency. After discussing this conflict with ham/scouters,
Ray Moyer, WD8JKV, (National JOTA organizer), and ARRL, we suggest
using 7.270 as the US JOTA calling frequency.
