K4AMG club just did a kind of JOTA last night for CUBS. We had 15 young men
and 4 leaders. The Cubs did an exercise spelling their names using the
PHONETIC ALPHABET and each one took a turn on the High School Repeater W4FOS
talking to a WF4R. They did great and seemed to have a great hour on the
We thank Bill WF4R for his kind good deed.

This coming weekend, October 17-19, is the 57th annual Jamboree on the Air,
a World Scouting Organization event linking Scouts to Scouts internationally
via Amateur Radio. There will be hundreds of JOTA stations on the air this
weekend, most on HF and local V/U repeaters but some of us will also attempt
satellite contacts as well.
I will be managing a rather large event at the National Scouting Museum in
Irving, TX, EM12. We will be operating as K2BSA/5. Aside from HF and V/U,
Echolink and IRLP, we are hoping to make a few satellite contacts as well.
Our operation will be limited to 1500-2200Z on the 18th so our satellite
opportunities are limited but for sure we will be on an afternoon SO-50 pass
and hopefully an earlier AO-73 pass as well.
Please look for K2BSA/5 and any other JOTA stations on the birds and give
them a shout.
