Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is the largest Scouting event in the world. It is held annually the third full weekend in October. JOTA uses amateur radio to link Scouts and hams around the world, around the nation, and in your own community. This jamboree requires no travel, other than to a nearby amateur radio operator's ham shack. Many times you can find the hams will come to you by setting up a station at your Scout camporee, at the park down the block, or perhaps at a ham shack already set up at your council’s camp.
Sevier County ARES & The 470 ARG of East TN will assist the event this year, in Sevierville, in support of our Boy Scouts, along with the RACK and Meters, thanks to Kieth Gaines,we have a few to help but do need several others to help us make this event great for the Scouts.. between 9am and 12 pm the Scouts will be on the air, we invite all to join in on HF and 2 meters to communicate with the scouts ..Sevier County will be setup at the King Family Library...
