Jamboree on the Air

SCARCS will be operating Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) using the callsign VE7SCA on Saturday October 17th with local Scouts. The event will take place from 10:00 until the afternoon. The event will take place at Maryanne West Park in Gibsons.

On Thursday October 15th, members of SCARCS (VE7RBE, VA7FI, VA7ILO) did a Zoom presentation for the Scouts to teach about amateur radio and operating.

With COVID-19, strict social distancing will be observed at the event. Scouts will be at the site one at a time and have a half hour time slot to operate within.

We will be operating on the 20m band (14.270 - 14.290 MHz), 40m band (7.090 & 7.190 MHz, 7.180 – 7.200 MHz) and on IRLP node 9091 via VE7QNX (443.375+ T100.0).

We are looking forward to working with the Scouts.
