JOTA was held at St Andrews Church on 1st St W, Owen Sound from 10:00 hrs
to 16:30 hrs on Saturday, October 18, 2014.
JOTA 2014 was a success with stations contacted and amateur radio demonstrated
to the scouts and guides in attendance. Doug VE3WRF used his station consisting of
an FT840, MFJ tuner and a windom antenna installed as a sloper. The antenna was
strung from the top of the church bell tower to ground and worked very well with
stations contacted in Canada as well as the US. Thanks to those in attendance, Doug
VE3WRF, Adam VE3IZS, Tom VA3TS and Dave VE3WI.
