In celebration of Boy Scouts of America’s 100th anniversary, Northern California BSA is having a jamboree, and East Bay hams are putting on a jamboree on the air (JOTA) station to give scouts a chance to get on the air. The station call sign is WZ6BSA, and it should be accessible via HF, VHF (including IRLP), and satellite (when visible from CM97bp). You can get more information here. I am going to be the HF control operator 9am-1pm PDT tomorrow.
I wrote a WordPress width plugin to display N0NBH’s fabulous banners that display solar-terrestrial data of interest to ham radio enthusiasts. These banners show lots of useful information including predictions of HF/VHF propagation.
