JOTA October 19, 2013
The HHARC participated in the 56th Boy Scout Jamboree On The Air. We set up Saturday morning, Oct 19, in the parking lot of the Charles H. Huber Medical Center on Old Troy Pike, and ran until 3:30 pm. The day was rainy, raw and bone-chillingly cold and the bands were noisy, but we persevered. Four scouts came and were introduced to the world of ham radio; we made some good contacts – one was a DX to Costa Rica.
