The latest operations plan, version 8, has been posted here. We’ve also updated the staff listing here. We currently have 50 staff members which include 33 attending for the full Jamboree, 8 attending the first half, and 9 attending the second half. This means we still have 9 full time openings on the staff roster.
Check out the plan for a completely updated section on the K2BSA Demonstration Station, more information on the Dayton Drill @ cricket holler planned for the week of May 12, 2013, along with a number of other updates. You’ve read about ICOM America’s incredible transceiver and repeater sponsorship. We are also working with SteppIR on antennas, Heil Sound on headphones, and Array Solutions on bandpass filters. We have also packaged a complete 80 meter ARDF–Foxhunting kit for sponsorship. At this point, we expect to solicit donations for various items that can be purchased from the K2BSA treasury (tax deductible donations for this IRS 501c3 organization). We are also planning to sell the existing inventory of mono-band beam antennas that won’t be able to be put in use for the 2013 Jamboree.
We also had some fun creating what may very well be the first Call Sign Cloud of all the call signs presently on the K2BSA Jamboree staff. Check it out.
