Jamboree on the Air – 19 Oct.

Planning is underway to offer a great demonstration of radio communications at the Jamboree on the Air, held around the world on 19 October. In our council, we plan to offer JOTA demonstrations at the Council Service Centers in Birmingham and Huntsville.

We will show “old school” ham radio, with big antennas and people talking around the world. We will also show “new school” communication technologies combining radios and computers. With these, we can send texts, emails, and pictures to people around the world, or in the next town.

To support planning, we would like to know how many units and Scouts may attend. We will discuss this more at the September Round Table meeting on 5 September.
