Hello all,

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.
