Last weekend out Boy Scout Troop was camping at Camp Rancho Alege in the hills above Santa Barbara, California, to participate in the Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA).  JOTA is a nationwide Scouting event involving all things radio.  I'll post some pictures to give you an idea of what it was like.

And for those of you that follow OPOD, camping does make it difficult to compete in PJM's contest.  I had to wake up before sunrise and hike to a hilltop to get reception for my cell phone.

So I thought I'd share some photos from my weekend to give you a glimpse into my life.

(Some of my Scouts learning how to build their circuit boards)

(Alex talking to another Scout in Idaho via ham radio)

(killing a few spare moments)

(the guys learning how to send television signals over ham)

(Mitchell with a homemade radio direction finder)

(Madison on a live wireless television feed)

(a completed oscillator board - way to go!)

(a view of our campsite)

(Sam monitoring the spectrometer in a mobile ham van)

(Alex working on his oscillator)

and I had to include this last one.  The boys got a big kick out of the social nature of this pit toilet.  One of the guys came out and said that a girl must have designed this one because you know they like to talk all the time...

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article, thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well
