Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) October 20

posted Oct 10, 2018, 9:53 AM by L Gray   [ updated Oct 10, 2018, 9:54 AM ]

FARA will be participating in the 61st annual Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) on Saturday, October 20, 2018. We will be holding the event at Falmouth's Gus Canty Recreation Center at 790 Main Street, from 10am-5pm.

Once again, we will be using a special event call sign - W1BSA! The goal is to show all attendees (specifically any Scouts, Boy or Girl) what ham radio has to offer and get them on the air!

Volunteers are needed to operate several stations as demos and to get folks on the air:
* CW station
* HF voice (SSB)
* Digital (likely PSK31) with a big screen
* 2m HT and/or mobile

We are coordinating with another JOTA event held at Boy Scout Camp Greenough in Yarmouth for local 2m communications. If you can't assist with the event itself, but may available on the 20th, we could also use you for contacts!
