2017 Jamboree-on-the-Air at W5RRR

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!

Thank you to Scout Leaders Larry Robinson (Troop 1004), Ben Brandt (Troop 615), and Coy Kouba (KA5LSN) (Troop 603) for bringing the scouts to JOTA and introducing them to amateur radio!

Please check out the Photo Gallery for a few photos from this event.

Special thanks to Jeff Harbour (AB4ME), Mike Vandewalle (N8MTV), and Kaz Shimada (KG2O) for helping with this event.

We look forward to hosting more scouts for the 2018 Jamboree-on-the-Air!!
