GB4BDS JOTA Station

52jota_logo_hires_imagelargeBit late I know, should have posted weeks ago, but over the 52nd Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) weekend on 17 and 18 October 2009, I worked the 10Metre Net from the Scout Hall in Banstead.

I called in and was then delayed by the Chinese meal arriving, but I returned about 30 minutes later and worked those that were on the net.

Unfortunately, I didn’t copy the log, so apart from John G4NHO & Carlos G1UAI, I can’t recall who else was on, but thank you for the contacts.

The weekend was well attended by Cubs, Scouts, and Brownies from local groups and after a short presentation about what they would be doing, were split into groups. We had a morning and afternoon session each day.

Amongst the activities were building a small kit that played Christmas tunes, morse code practice, learning phonetics, VHF & HF contact using the GB4BDC callsign. Saturday was busiest day for numbers that came along, and some of the youngsters did the activities to earn their communication badges. Congratulations to those that did.
