JOTA brings worldwide Scouts together this weekend

Postby Mikerowaved » Fri Oct 17, 2008 10:30 am

Some 500,000 Scouts and leaders will get together on Amateur Radio waves and Internet during the 51st Jamboree On The Air and 12th Jamboree On The Internet this Saturday and Sunday (18-19 Oct 2008). The LDS Church has always been a strong supporter of the Scouting program and many LDS Scouts will participate in JOTA this year (particularly on Saturday) speaking with other Scouts in foreign lands, strengthening relationships and creating lasting bonds.

For those Amateur Radio operators (or listeners) interested, the following will be used as calling frequencies:

Code: Select all

BAND    PHONE(MHz)       CW(MHz)
80 m     3.690 & 3.940     3.570         
40 m     7.090 & 7.190     7.030         
20 m     14.290           14.060         
17 m     18.140           18.080
15 m     21.360           21.140
12 m     24.960           24.910
10 m     28.390           28.180
 6 m     50.160           50.160
More information can be found HERE, and a PDF flyer of the event can be downloaded from THIS page.

Many thanks to the ham operators around the world who share their time and personal equipment with the Scouts to make this all possible.
