We had a great time at Camp Lazarus in Delaware, OH operating the JOTA station. We were able to get a lot of scouts talking on the air. Arlin's, KD8EVR portable DMR repeater provided the scouts the opportunity to connect with others scouts on the JOTA talk group from all over including Ireland, the UK, and other states. Arnal, N9ACC did agreat job working with the scouts on the HF radio. Bob, W8NVN from Madison County made a great looking display and helped scouts with the morse code keyers. Josh, KB8YQS and his son Joe, KE8JOE did great getting scouts talking to eachother on HTs. Joe, KE8JOE also made a lot of contacts on the DMR radio and helped with the DMR radio. He was doing great for being 10 and licensed earlier this year. Dennis, KE8HDE did a great job talking about the hobby with the scouts and provided the Pop-Up canapoies and tables. There were an esimated 500 people at the camp durring the day and Camp Lazarus had over 900 attend the Monster Mash event that night. Please click on the title or the readmore link to see pictures.
