JOTA feedback from ARRL
- Thank you to everyone who participated in JOTA 2002 and completed a
survey. I have received more ARRL JOTA surveys than in any given
year since it has been on the web. (1998) My goal is to receive at
least one survey from every state! I haven't received any from DE,
HI, ID, MS, MT, NE, ND, SD, UT, VT, and WY.
Also I was looking around at the Council web sites. I have yet to
find any with links to JOTA or JOTA on their calendar. So, if you
want your Council or District to be more aware of ham radio and/or
JOTA perhaps you can ask them to add a link or two to their sites.
Here is the email I have sent to a few councils. You may feel free
to send this on my behalf.
I wondered why there is no mention of Jamboree on the Air on the ?????
(add the name of the council or district) web page. This has been a
BSA event for 45 years involving scouts around the world. It is an
opportunity for scout (regardless of age or sex) to talk to other
scouts around the world using amateur radio. Last year more that
4,000 young scouts participated in the USA alone. For more
information, please visit http://www.arrl.org/FandES/ead/#scout or
If anyone participated in JOTA 2002 please complete the ARRL JOTA
survey at http://www.arrl.org/FandES/ead/jotalog/
These surveys help BSA and ARRL (American Radio Relay League) see the
growth in this event and what it needed to continue this growth.
Please consider adding links about JOTA to this and other Scouting
sites. Please send any questions to jwolfgang@... .
