A Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) station will be operational at the Mansfield Emergency Operations Center, writes Allan Cox, K1VQ on the Sturdy Memorial Hospital ARC mailing list. “Exact staffing and hours of operation are not known at this time, but we plan to be open,” writes Cox.
K1VQ asks if anyone has information on local events or knows activities at scout camps (such as Camp Norse) to contact him.
“If you know of Scout Leaders looking for a local JOTA station, you may provide them my e-mail address.”
JOTA is an annual event in which about 500,000 Scouts and Guides all over the world make contact with each other by means of Amateur Radio. The next JOTA event is scheduled for October 15-16, 2005. For additional information on the event, visit http://www.scout.org/wse/jota.shtml.Read More
