2021 JOTA-JOTI Information

Jamboree on the Air and Jamboree on the Internet will be held this year on October 15, 16, and 17. For additional information check out the new USA JOTA-JOTI website at https://www.scouting.org/international/jota-joti/  

You can register as an individual or group on the World JOTA-JOTI site at https://www.jotajoti.info  Check out the directory for all those who have already registered. You can also receive your JID to participate in the JamPuz game during the event.

Be on the lookout for #JOTAJOTI on your favorite social medial platform, and be prepared to share your event as well!

You can further find a great deal of information about Jamboree on the Air at https://k2bsa.net/jota/  Select from the website menu for additional supporting information. 

JOTI.tv and ScoutLink

In many situations on the air amateur radio Scout stations will be operating from home rather than at Scout Camps and other group locations. You can supplement that effort with some of the Jamboree on the Internet systems.

Try out JOTI.tv with a computer and video to join JOTIcafe and meet up with other Scouts from around the world via video. For more info https://www.joti.tv/blog/2021/10/04/everything-you-need-to-know-about-jotajoti-2021/

There's also ScoutLink for online chat rooms as well as their MineCraft game. Here's the link https://www.scoutlink.net

Hi all!

I just wanted everyone to know that starting at about 0400Z on 15 OCT and lasting until about 0000Z on 20 October, I'll be underway "somewhere in the Philippine Sea."  I'll try to work PSK31, but will also be on FT8 as well.  I plan on activating as many water grids as I can.  

40/80 doesn't tune well, but I plan to be on 30-6M as conditions and time allows.  

I hope to some new calls on the waterfall.

Re: Reminder – JAMBOREE ON THE AIR - JOTA

Steve WB3LGC
 

I am part of a group that will be operating JOTA. 
SSB, 2m FM, maybe CW, and I will give time to PSK31. 

I am "the facilitator" (to use a corporate term) as Campmaster (our Crew, there are other Campmaster Crews) and most of our Campmaster Crew will be running shooting sports on Saturday. 
I have two hams helping me (imports, not Campmasters) and a third ham is going to visit for a while. 
We will operate under the Club Call KB3NCC "Radio Scouting Troop".

It looks like we will have 12 troops (and ONE Cub Pack) in camp. 
Time will tell how many visit. 
More often than not, the Cubs DO show. 

We will be at Camp Rodney Scout Reservation, FM29am grid in MD. 
We will have a 3 element 20-15-10 beam on a trailer. 
We will have a 40m dipole and maybe 80m.
I am not sure what the guys have for rigs or modes planned.

I plan on setting up a end-fed random antenna at our Campmaster HQ for camper check-in. 
I will show a intro video  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x6x_6mDVlQ 
I will give PSK31 a try Friday night starting at 0000z and hopefully I can make it work either with the PSK built into the Elecraft rig or with fldigi. 
After dinner on Saturday, I hope to be on again. 

I won't know what we are doing on the air until we determine rigs/antennas/modes Saturday morning. 
I am not sure "we" will have internet at camp as lightning took out the feed and it was not "up" two weeks ago...   
We will have fun and I hope we stir some interest in the YOUTH.

73, steve WB3LGC

For your participation in the JAMBOREE ON THE AIR - JOTA

on October 15 - 17, 2021,

PODXS 070 Club offers JOTA Participation and Enabler Stickers.

Few people realize that JOTA is the largest Scouting event in the world. Each year more than 1.3 Million Scouts and Guides "get together" over the airwaves for the annual Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA).

For an overview of the 64th annual event, see: Jamboree On The Air- JOTA.

Always held on the third weekend in October, this year it will run from Friday October 15 thru Sunday October 17. There are no official hours of operation. 

Keep in mind this is not a contest for the most contacts, but an opportunity to meet and encourage those millions of potential new PODXS 070 members!

There will be two different JOTA Stickers offered to 070 members.

1)  JOTA Participant for those who get on air and make a contact with a JOTA station. 

2) JOTA Enabler for those who, working with a troop, set up a station, oversee operation, and "enable" PSK31 JOTA contacts for Scouts in any way.

A JOTA Enabler may also claim JOTA Participant if they make a PSK31 contact with another JOTA station.

For an excellent example of a JOTA enabler, just check out the QRZ.COM page for Mike, KE0GHU, 070 member #2415.

We will use the honor system - just like the Field Day Sticker - to determine eligibility for both endorsements as it greatly simplifies the process of awarding stickers.  If you say you participated, you participated! Please DO NOT send or attach your log. 

So, answer or call “CQ JOTA” and settle back to meet a Boy Scout, perhaps a 070 member some day!

After the event and before October 31st, send your email to:  robinstan@...

On the Subject Line, state “JOTA Sticker”.
In the body state the following:
1) Your Call and Member number
2) The number of completed JOTA contacts
3) State your role if claiming to be a JOTA Enabler

I will compile the complete list of the Participants and Enablers and post that on the 070 Email Reflector. You will be added to the next Sticker mailing list.

Re: IEEE Future of Ham Radio

Jerry N9AVY
 

Been sick since Friday night and just now catching up on almost 100 emails I found in Inbox.

The IEEE article wasn't clickable (slight inconvenience), but my local club has the same article only all I had to do was click on URL and was able to read it.  Seems like it was just a rehash of past articles which appeared elsewhere over the past few years from various sources.

Noticed comment about Antennas vs. HOAs.  WE should know that the lobby organization which represents the HOAs in a whole bunch bigger than ARRL; so, they might have more clout with the ears of those who make rules (money talks).

They also numbered ARRL membership at 160,000 which seems like a higher number than I last heard which was around 152,000. Look at SK list in QST and I think that may account for some of loses; especially when it was running almost 2 whole pages. It saddens me to see so many SK, many which I have worked over the years.

I might suggest that the article be taken with a grain of salt because no one really knows what the future will bring.  

Just my 2 cents worth ...
