Bristol Co RA logoRon Silvia, WB1HGA writes on

This weekend is the annual Scouting/Amateur radio event known as Jamboree on the Air (JOTA). This is an international event. Scouts (boys and girls) will be trying radio for the first time. All modes are available for use but phone is the most popular.

Here is a list of suggested HF frequencies: SSB 3740, 3940 7270, 14290, 18140, 21360, 24960, 28390 CW 3590, 7030, 14070, 18080, 21140, 24910, 28190. Saturday, October 21, and wraps up Sunday, October 22.

At our location in Rehoboth, SSB and maybe FM and CW will be used. We will be on during the day Saturday only.

We will represent [the Bristol County Repeater Association] and use the W1ACT call.

If you hear us or other stations, please talk with the kids. One of them may become a ham someday.

-Ron WB1HGA and Wheat N1YCQ
