2007 JOTA (Boy Scout Jamboree on the Air) Spring TX
Red Cross ECRV 4707 arrives
Rigging the Buddipole for 20m
Richard discusses the finer points of what the ECRV is all about
We decided to add an interesting twist to the flag raising ceremony, flip a switch
and up it goes
WAY up there
Richard demonstrating the satellite data link
OOPS!… I didnt do it
If all else fails… Ham Radio really does work
how many scouts can we fit inside?
tuning up the radios for the event
lots of smiling faces
dishes and mast deployed
We found several interested in being future ECRV operators
Satellite communications discussion
Getting started with the contacts
What did he say?
Handling the mic like an old pro
Classroom debriefing and logging of contacts
Time to pack it all up and head out…. anybody know the way to Washington D.C. ???
