D-Star: WV8BSA and Reflector 033A — note that during the Jamboree WV8BSA is locked to REF033A, the dedicated Scouting reflector, to avoid problems with linking and unlinking with each operator’s preferences.

CW: There will be limited operation on CW as time permits. See Scouting Frequencies.

QSLs: The current K2BSA Jamboree Logbook can be found at Jamboree Logbook. There is also an online QSL request window on that page, SASE to K5ND will work, plus Logbook of the World will have all QSOs after the Jamboree.

Times of Operation: The Summit Center is only open from 8 AM to 5 PM Eastern Time starting July 19 through the 27. We do hope to operate in the evenings remotely from staff camp, but that’s not assured. Our demonstrations with Scouts will be happening in the daytime and that’s when we need contacts.
