PARG members once again assisted with the running of a portable amateur station for the 59th Jamboree Of The Air (JOTA) at Rockingham Scout Hall. Once again the groups Mobile Communications Unit was pressed into service. This JOTA station has been increasing in popularity for several years and once again proved to be the best attended station in VK6! WA’s Chief Scout Commissioner – Barbara de la Hunty spent some time at Rockingham checking out the station and she came away very impressed. Most popular on the day was the Echolink station which was linked via 2 metres simplex to the node of Martin VK6MJ approximately 24 km south, in Mandurah. Big thanks to Michelle VK6MLW for the long stint at connecting Scouts from Rockingham to many different countries on the day.
