SARC/AARO JOTA Outing a Success!!


K5OLE <davidftx@...>
 

The joint efforts of the San Antonio Radio Club and the Alamo Area Radio
Organization led to a very successful 2006 Jamboree On The Air at
McGimsey Scout Camp this past Saturday. Three HF stations and two VHF
stations were set up using several verticals, an inverted V, a 2 meter
loop, and a Hamstick dipole antenna.

W2IK demostrated his completely self contained HF/VHF station which
included numerous antennas of his own design.

N5IUT led 12 scouts, from two different troops, through the necessary
steps to complete their Radio Merit Badges. Many more Scouts
participated in the day's radio activities.

Members of both clubs served as Control Operators while the Scouts
talked to other Scouts on HF.

Pictures of the JOTA activities have been posted to the PHOTOS section
of this Yahoo Group.

Thanks to all who participated.

below, as the basis of a news story on www.sanantoniohams.org. Thanks!
