On Saturday, Oct., the Palm Springs American Legion Post 519 Amateur Radio Club (K6TAL) hosted the Boy Scouts of America in participating in the annual Jamboree On the Air (JOTA).
One 7-year-old Scout communicated "solo" on HF radio to Scouts in New York, Georgia, Arizona and numerous other Scout venues (K2BSA) across the country, as his mom looked on. Timid? I think not!
JOTA is the world's largest Scouting event. All in all the event was a fantastic success, with nothing but positive feedback from parents, Scoutmasters and the Scouts themselves.
Band conditions were very cooperative, particularly on 20 meters.
