Re: 51st JAMBOREE ON THE AIR (JOTA)
- A reminder:
This weekend is the Scout's annual Jamboree On The Air and we're going
to have fun! You are invited to participate, help, enjoy, and work
the event. There will be Scouts on the air from around the States and
the globe. (I'm hoping to have a QSO with Scouts in Egypt) We have a
sked with K8BP and K1ESE. There will be demonstration shacks. I'm
hoping we can get my PA on the air. Free hot dogs and chips for lunch.
Drop in and see for yourself.
