The Scout Jamboree on the Air, JOTA, takes place on the weekend of 15th and 16th October.
Scouting Ireland and IRTS are making a special effort to increase activity and a number of radio clubs and individual operators have already indicated their intention to take part.
Activity can be for the whole weekend, just one day or even a few hours. This is a really worthwhile activity for both Scouting and Amateur Radio and will help promote the hobby particularly among teenagers and young adults.
If you can help out either by hosting some scouts at your station or giving a hand at the local club station please contact Paul EI2CA QTHR.
There is a particularly active and enthusiastic scout group in Ashbourne County Meath who want to team up with a club or individual operators. They are well resourced and have a premises in the town complete with a mobile antenna tower. Let us know if you can help.
