JOTA Oct 21/22

Post by ve3wrf » Mon Sep 11, 2017 11:56 pm

I am looking for assistance with the Owen Sounds Scout and Girl Guide units for JOTA participation. At present I am waiting on response from them then I will make final arrangements. If you can help for the afternoon/evening on Sat Oct 21st, please post here or email me at "ve3wrf@gmail.com" with your offer.

Thanks & 73

Hi Doug.
What bands are you going to be running?
We are also doing JOTA in Tiverton for the Girl Guides from Kincardine and some surrounding units, yet to be determined.
We plan on operating on 80, 40, 20 and 2.
Would be great to be able to make contact between each other on multiple bands.
We will also be using VA3RAC all weekend and for JOTA.
Talk soon!
Rob, VE3PCP

Hi Rob,

I will be operating on 40, 20 and 2 (through VE3OST repeater) from Word of Life campground at Woodford, with the 1st Owen Sound Scouts and hopefully some Guides from OS. The station will be operational Saturday afternoon and evening. Hope to catch you. BTW we will be using VE3OSR and maybe VC3OS (special event issued for Owen Sound 160/Canada 150).

If I am still around - I am leaving the country soon, depending on the speed of visas - then I'll help out.

I've an 80m NVIS dipole that should allow for the contact over to the other troop mentioned in the thread by PCP...

Hello Doug,
I am willing to help, although not sure how I can contribute but willing to do whatever I am able to do.
I am viewing this as an introduction to the activities of ARO.
I know the date and location but please confirm arrival time for helpers.
with thanks
Becky
