JAMBOREE ON THE AIR (JOTA)
– YOU make it HAPPEN
Where: West Redding (just south of Danbury, off Rte. 7)
When: Saturday – Oct. 15, 2022
Hours: 9 am – 4 pm (Lunch break: 11:30 am – 1 pm)
Each year more than a million Scouts and Guides “get together” over the airwaves for the annual Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA).
On average, worldwide Scouting participation includes 1.1 million Boy Scouts and 200,000 Girl Guides/Gils Scouts, for a total participation of over 1.3 million–the largest Scouting event in the world.
Fall 2022 Camporee Theme: ” MISSION POSSIBLE ”
Designed as a “Mission Possible” Spy Theme weekend.
– If you live by the Scout Law/Oath, then any challenge is “Possible!”
This theme gives us a natural “Tie-In” to their event, and is a great way to SHARE THE MAGIC of Amateur Radio with about 150 scouts. Here they get to learn a little bit about RADIO, and get the opportunity to have a QSO “ON-THE-AIR” with other Scouts: Locally, Regionally, and Internationally.
TIME IS SHORT
JOTA is just FIVE WEEKS Away!
We are looking to put together a TEAM of 6 Hams to bring the JOTA experience to about 150 Scouts for this one-day event.
WILL YOU BE ONE OF THEM?
This JOTA Team will need to bring:
– ONE (or 2) complete portable HF Radio Station(s)
– TWO complete portable/mobile VHF/UHF Radios Stations (with Mast and Antenna)
– Off-Grid Power Supplies (To Be Confirmed)
JOIN this JOTA TEAM today… DON’T WAIT!
