Time: Stop by from 8:00AM – 5:00 PM
Location: Naples American Red Cross (Behind Bob Evans Restaurant) 2610 Northbrooke Plaza Dr. Naples, FL 34119
Cost: No Charge!
Details: All Scouts and general public are invited to an amateur HAM radio “Jamboree” with 14,000 Scouts from across the world! Every year Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) brings Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers together through the airwaves to learn about amateur radio operation. This is a great recreational use of “old school” technology to speak with other scouts in areas your Scout may never go in their lifetime.
Special thanks to the Amateur Radio Association of Southwest Florida for their assistance in helping with a Collier County event for Collier County Scouts. Boy Scouts can get a start on their Radio Merit Badge with this activity! Don’t forget, we will have a JOTA station if you are at Cub Scout Extravaganza as well!
