The Jamboree on the Air, or JOTA, is an annual Scouting event that uses amateur radio to link Scouts around the world, around Canada, and in our own community.
On the weekend, a few of our members were working on the amateur radio session for the Scouts. There were many contacts, with the farthest being southern California. Watching the kids' eyes light up while talking with someone on the radio is always exciting.
