Rick DeWeese, KJ4WHO, drops back in to refresh our memory on the upcoming JOTA.  Rick is a Ham, Scout-Master & fellow Podcaster!  He joined me on Episode 31 to discuss Ham Radio and Scouting in great depth.

The 2016 Jamboree On The Air is scheduled for the 3rd weekend in October (14-16).  You can learn more about JOTA on the ARRL site.

During that same weekend, there is a Special Event Station scheduled in Houston, Texas.

Camp Hope will be hosting their 5th Annual BBQ Weekend, and Local Amateur Bob Hawkins (KD5AT) will be spearheading the On-Air event K0D!  This year, the radio clubs from Texas U and Texas A&M will be on-site competing for the most contacts to help raise PTSD awareness.

  1. Great podcast this week. Will be traveling next weekend (JOTA) but will throw out my call on the east coast and see what comes back. Was nice that I heard many hams return calls to K2BSA in Iowa and talk to the kids…well done. Keep up the great work! Dave, AI6OU
