Cub Scout Jamboree on the Air – Saturday, October 21st

The Cub Scout Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) will be at the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 38 Grand Ave. Swanton, VT 05488 on Saturday October 21st. 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We would love the assistance of any ham operators that would like to volunteer to setup a station or work with the scouts about different things related to radio. Even showing test equipment and how it works can get the boys interested in the technical field.

I am working with Dennis Ziegler, KB1NST to have a station in Newport VT to contact if there is poor propagation on the 21st. He is a Scout leader in the Newport area and is inviting Scouts in that area to his Station for the event.

I will have a handheld on me and listen to the N1STA repeater, if someone is looking for me.

Scouts will start arriving at 1:00 p.m. Radio operators are welcome to arrive at 11:30 a.m. for setup and checking out what bands are open.

The event will run to 4:30 p.m. the scouts will be split in to small groups of 4 to 6 boys and go to different activities.   They will spend about 20 minutes at each activity.

If anyone has any questions I can be reached via or my cell 802-782-5236
