We will only be on one, MAYBE two of the JOTA frequencies at a time.

There are going to be around 200 scouts, not 400-500.

Subject: [amsat-bb] KD8KSN Active Tomorrow (4/30) for Boy Scout Demo

Hi All,

I have been asked to do a few satellite demos for some Boy Scouts tomorrow
afternoon on Horn’s Hill, Newark Ohio.  The location sits about 400-500’
above the rest of the terrain which is great for low passes, but there are
several trees to contend with.  It would be great if a few people could call
so the scouts could hear a typical exchange, and it would be really great if
whoever calls could give their state as well.

Here are the passes I plan to be on:

AO27    30/1817z    50*

AO51    30/1942z    15*

AO27    30/1957z    19*

I will be operating with my usual call, or I might be operating using W8CBF.
Grid will still be EN80.

We will also be on HF:

JOTA Scout Frequencies
> Band
> 80-meter
>       3.940 MHz
> 40-meter
>      7.190 MHz
> 20-meter
>       14.290 MHz
> 10-meter
>       28.390 MHz

Sorry I can't provide more details about the event.  I believe there were a
few organizational issues.  The passes and HF ops will be dependent on who
all shows up, band conditions and weather.  There are supposedly 400-500
scouts that will be coming through.

If you would like a card, send me the QSO details and I will send you one -
no return necessary.
