AMSAT-NA is again supporting the 51st Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) Scouting 
event by dedicating AO-51 operation to the event. For October 18th and 19th, 
AO-51 will be configured as a single channel V/U repeater, and all users are 
requested to standby for JOTA stations. Please limit QSOs to those between 
or involving at least one JOTA station during this weekend. The frequencies 
used for this weekend will be 145.880 FM uplink, and 435.300 FM downlink, no 
PL tone required. The mode change should occur at ~00:00 UTC on the 18th 
(Friday evening in the US) and run for approximately 48 hours.

I'd like to wish the Scouts good luck operating via the AO-51 satellite for 
the event, and would like to encourage reports to be sent to the AMSAT-BB or 
directly to me at ko4ma at amsat.org. Photo files up to 5 Mb total are also 
welcome to my address for possible inclusion in an upcoming AMSAT Journal 

73, Drew KO4MA
