Jamboree-On-The-Air – This Saturday Oct 21


This Saturday October 21, 2017 I will be participating in the 60th annual JAMBOREE-ON-THE-AIR. This is an international Scouting and Amateur Radio (aka Ham Radio) event. Scouts are invited to participating amateur stations to demonstrate amateur radio and provide the opportunity to have scouts chat with other scouts. The other end of the conversation may be with someone across town, across the state, in another state or overseas. You just never know. Scouts should wear class A shirt as photos will be taken and sent to the International JOTA reporting group. Adults, scouts, siblings and friends are all welcome.

Past years I’ve been able to do JOTA at a Fall Camporee. This year the dates were off by a week so I’m doing this at my home station. It is a lot dryer here too.

Date – Saturday October 21, 2017

Location – Mr Sikora’s home. 8747 Northcote, Munster

Time – 1 to 5 PM

Directions – From Lansing Cleaners on Ridge Road….

Ridge Road south on Oakwood Ave to Anne Street

Anne Street east to Northcote Avenue

The home on the east side is the spot. If you look straight up and see an antenna then you are in the right spot. Enter via the back door just opposite the garage.

Munster Town Council Recognizes our 90th anniversary

Thank you to the members of the Munster Town Council, which recognized Boy Scout Troop 533 at last night’s council meeting. Troop 533 is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year! Founded in 1927, the troop was around to help President Coolidge dedicate Wicker Park. More than 100 boys have reached the rank of Eagle Scout. (More on their way too!) A special thanks to Chris Ritchey Ashcraft for making this happen.
