Local Scout Jamboree on the Air JOTA
I wanted to say Thank you to Don K Rhodes "KB2YSI". Don is a local Ham Radio Operator and spent time this weekend to Support both his love of Ham Radio and Scouting. Sunday was the last day of the annual World Wide Event called Jamboree on the Air JOTA from his set up near Madison Ny., Don showcased His Radio equipment and talent and knowledge with the young scouts, Pack 232 and their guests, explaining radio waves, antennas , and the world etc, giving the scouts a chance to speak to other Ham's around the world. I kind of stumbled into the event while attending with my Grandson Caleb. I did many years ago operate a M.A.R.S. station AB4CH from South Korea while in the military US Army. Trained by Ken Murphy W2SKA Rochester NY. The change in Equipment since those years was an eye opening experience to say the least. The reminder of time with Ken at a young age is still a favored memory I hope one that will be repeated Thru Don KB2SYI and the scouts of last weekend 20 Oct 2019. Thank You Again Don!
