Jamboree-on-the-Air a Success

The Upper Pinellas Amateur Radio Club went to Lutz, FL to help Boy Scout Troop 12 participate in the 2022 Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA) event. We assisted with training, license testing, setup and operation of amateur radio equipment. The most important part was getting the Scouts on the air so they could learn about our hobby and work toward a Radio Merit Badge. Contacts were made around the US as well as Ireland, Germany, LY5A in Lithania and ZS6CCY in South Africa.

Here the Scouts were learning from Ryan KO4KGP about how a Satellite can be used to talk to different parts of the planet and even the ISS in outer space! The team tried really hard to make an ISS contact, but there were some technical difficulties. Well get it at JOTA 2023!


Scoutmaster Josh KO4VVX comes to check on Ariana after she contacted Germany!

Perhaps the most important thing we learned…

..before you enter the Scout Hall!
