JOTA 2019

The 62nd Annual Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) event was held at McGimsey Scout Park in the Cub Pavilion area. The event started Friday, October 18th and concluded Sunday. Participants camped out overnight Friday & Saturday.

Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people together globally. People use radio to communicate across town, across the country, around the world, and into space using the “Air Waves”, satellites, repeaters and the internet.  It’s fun, social, educational, and provides the ability to speak with fellow amateur operator’s globally thereby creating friendship’s and spreading international goodwill. It can be used as a lifeline during times of need, and fosters good communication development for the Scout.
