73 from the Jamboree!
We were on the air from beautiful Camp Nedooae in
Elderbank, Nova Scotia from July 8th through 15th! Thousands of youth and volunteers enjoyed a great jamboree and many had their first introduction to Amateur Radio in the radio tent.
HF Equipment consisted of an iCom IC-746PRO transceiver, an off-center-fed dipole for 80/40/20m, and an HF vertical for 20/17/12/10m.
VHF and IRLP
We also operated VHF 2m via local repeaters (below) and IRLP.
VE17JAM used 2m repeater VE1HAR (Truro NS) 147.135+ (IRLP 2370) and local 2m repeater VE1MHR (Musquodoboit Harbour NS) 147.030+ (no IRLP).
VHF equipment consisted of an iCom IC-208H transceiver and a VHF vertical antenna.
