On October 22nd, scouts visited the W5RRR shack to participate in Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA) – the largest Scouting event in the world!
By my count, 18 scouts visited the station and each scout made multiple contacts with other scouts!

If you’d like to learn more or practice passing traffic, here are a few links from David and Fred Shetz (AD5FS).

Remember Paige Veal of Carrollton, GA?
Paige attended the West Georgia Amateur Radio Society’s Field Day back in June and made a QSO with W5RRR via their GOTA station. JSCARC confirmed her QSO and sent her a QSL card and some NASA mementos. In mid-July, JSCARC received word that Paige was studying hard for her license with her Dad, Brian (KM4UPX).
Well, no need for a GOTA callsign anymore… Paige was just granted her Technician license and the callsign KN4GHU!
