RESULTS – PODXS 070 - JOTA STICKERS
The results are in! Thanks to everyone who participated and sent me their report of contacts with JOTA stations. Several reported having very interesting chats with Scouts at those stations.
1) JOTA Participant for those who get on air and make a contact with a JOTA station.
The JOTA is a Worldwide Scouting event. Our members reported JOTA contacts from as far away as Azores, Luxembourg, Scotland, Sweden and Ontario, Canada.
2) JOTA Enabler for those who, working with a troop, set up a station, oversee operation, and "enable" PSK31 JOTA contacts for scouts.
Only one JOTA Enabler report was received from Mike, KE0GHU.
Pictured above is Mike, KE0GHU (070 #2415) and son, Thomas, KE0OCA, (Tech).
Mike provided 8 JOTA contacts as KE0GHU and two contacts as N0ISH from Camp Naish, Bonner Springs, KS. He also provided opportunities with 20M SSB, 2M FM repeaters, Fox Hunting and 6M Simplex using a Vietnam era PRC-77 for the Scouts.
As we currently do not have a “Sticker Boss”, It may take a while to get the Stickers in the mail. But eventually, you’ll get yours.
P.S.: If you have been considering taking the job of Director - Mailing and Distribution (Sticker Boss) after John, KE4JB has left this post, now would be an easy entry point for that 070 support role. Send me your questions!
