We’ve just concluded the 57th annual Jamboree on the Air. I managed to work a few contacts. Most notably with K2BSA/4 in Charlotte, NC, and with TG9AJR in Guatemala. The former gets on the air most years, the latter this was their first year on the air. Heard a number of stations in conversations with Scouts. Lots of stations on 10 meters as well. So it appeared that propagation was great.

Overall, the USA registration system had 355 stations register prior to the event and we already have 100+ after action reports filed from them. At the world level there were 4,600+ registered that included both Jamboree on the Air and Jamboree on the Internet. So I think we had a great weekend.

I hope you were able to get on the air and work with the Scouts. It’s really a fantastic event introducing the Scouts to other cultures, countries, and the fun, technology, and magic of amateur radio.

What do you think?
