This is a special posting to inform you about an upcoming opportunity for you to enjoy your hobby while impacting our youth in a very positive and lasting way.
Jamboree on the Air – Jamboree on the Internet
19th, 20th and 21st October 2018
This week end you’ll hear a lot of young people on the air and you’re encouraged to QSO with them and share their excitement. These youth will be along side experienced ham radio operators who are introducing them to our hobby. Called the Jamboree of the Air, the event gives Scouts worldwide an opportunity to learn and experience amateur radio. While many scouts will participate at outdoor events, there’s also an indoor opportunity for them and you. The following information is from their web site, www.jota-joti.org. Hal Rogers, K8CMD
