2017 JOTA Station Locations and Contacts

It may be just showing the distribution of Scouting units across the country but perhaps it's showing us something more. Let us know what you think.

2017 JOTA Report Winner — K4V

Thanks to everyone who filed their JOTA Station Report. As promised, all the names were entered into a drawing and K4V was the winner of the Icom ID-51A Plus. Thank you Icom America for your continued support of amateur radio in Scouting.

K4V was on the air from Louisville, TN and the Great Smoky Mountain Council. They've shared a few photos of their operation along with a delightful video that captures the excitment of getting on the air during JOTA. Congratulations to George Shields and Stephen Carpenter of K4V for conducting a great Jamboree on the Air operation and in winning the HT for filing their station report.
