Jamboree on the Air Resources

Jamboree on the Air Thought Starters provides ideas to help prepare Scouts for Jamboree on the Air.  The information has been compiled from years of JOTA participation.

JOTA Activity Booklet is provided by Alan Wentzell, KE4TIO, of Pack 415 in the Gulf Ridge Council, the booklet introduces a great deal of information and includes some games that Scouts will enjoy.

Finally, some resources provided by ICOM America, a series of comic books written for Scout-age youth to introduce amateur radio concepts. You can download all seven of the comics at here.

KB4SA will be QRV for JOTA 2012

The KB4SA Amateur Radio station will be operating from Clay County on October 20th 0830-1300 (or until the last Scout has had opportunity to make a contact) at Black Creek Trailhead, US 17 South just before Black Creek. All Scouts and Scouting Units in the North Florida Council are encouraged to stop by and learn more about amateur radio, make radio contacts and enjoy the Black Creek Trail. Two radios will be operating and atmospheric conditions are expected to be excellent for communications throughout North America and to Europe. (*preference for making contacts will be given to Scouts seeking to complete requirements for pertinent badges and awards*)

Please RSVP with approximate numbers of Scouts and Scouters, along with planned arrival time, to Joe Bassett at w1wcn@comcast.net.
