Morse Code Study Group

Always wanted to learn Morse code? Not sure how to get started? Need a little more motivation to practice? Want to learn the tricks the pros use? Come and join us for a bi-weekly study group focused on learning code.

Nick (KA5TVI) and others will lead practice sessions and will share experiences with learning and communicating with Code.

Since this is a bi-weekly meetup, you will not be able to learn code solely in class. Learning code takes a daily commitment to retain and expand on what you’ve learned.

Note: The meeting place is in a secured area and visitors need to be escorted. Contact W5HRC on the 147.100Mhz (PL 110.9hz) repeater for access or call 817-788-7379 from a cell phone. Do not use the lobby phone as it goes directly to 911.

Please make an effort to arrive 15 minutes before the meeting starts to allow everyone to be escorted and the meeting can begin on time. Thanks!

Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) with Pack 320

When Scouts want to meet young people from another country, they usually think of attending a World Jamboree. But few people realize that each year more than half a million Scouts and Guides “get together” over the airwaves for the annual Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA). Modern technology offers Scouts the exciting opportunity to make friends in other countries without leaving home. JOTA is an annual event in which Boy and Girl Scouts and Guides from all over the world speak to each other by means of Amateur (ham) Radio. Scouting experiences are exchanged and ideas are shared via radio waves. Many Scouts and leaders hold licenses and have their own stations, but the majority participate in JOTA through stations operated by local radio clubs and individual radio amateurs. Some operators use television or computer-linked communications.

The Hurst Amateur Radio Club will be participating with Pack 320 by setting up and operating a Jamboree on the Air station on October 18th, 2014 from 10am to 4pm (setup at 9am). We will need a minimum of two volunteers (one of which needs to be General class or higher) during the entire operating period. Others are welcome to attend and talk with these 6-11 year old boys about amateur radio.

For more information on JOTA, visit http://www.arrl.org/jamboree-on-the-air-jota and http://www.scouting.org/jota.aspx.

Please visit the online signup to ensure we have enough volunteers for the entire event.
