Jamboree On The Air participation dips for third year

The ARRL says Scout participation for the October 2015 JOTA was reported down by 8 percent from 2014

In 2012, there were 18,566 Scouts and visitors but in 2013 participation was down by nearly 4700, and it slipped further in 2014.

“The total number of Scout councils involved dropped from 149 to 127,” said the report posted by National Jamboree On The Air Organizer Jim Wilson, K5ND. “Therein lies our big challenge — getting the word out to local Scout councils about the biggest Scouting event in the world and how they can participate.”
