Thanks Ron N8XZ for sending us this info on the JOTA event happening this Saturday.  If you have the time tune in and help the Scouts make some contacts.  Then let let us know on the next Tuesday night net how many contacts you made.  


Help get kids excited about ham radio.


Operating Frequencies

The following frequencies are those established by the World Scout Bureau for use during the JOTA weekend.

Amateur Band   SSB/Phone          CW
 
80 meters         3.69 & 3.94 MHz    3.57 MHz
40 meters         7.19 & 7.27 MHz    7.03 MHz
20 meters        14.29 MHz            14.06 MHz

These are "calling frequencies". After contact has been made, you should move off that frequency (either above or below) to continue your contact and allow others to use the calling frequency.

Note: D-STAR reflectors REF019A and REF019C will also be active for JOTA weekend.

 

Glenn tells me to check DStar REF014C as well.

 

I found websites for it too:
