JOTA 2014 Report shows drop in participation


That's the headline from the ARRL JOTA Report coverage. We reported the same thing here in our JOTA 2014 Report. Thanks to everyone who registered their station and followed up with a report on your activity. 

Our survey of those that did not file a report revealed that a few didn't run the event due to other issues, one was dodging a hurricane. Others said that time got away from them and they just didn't file it.

The big recommendation was that you designate someone on the JOTA team to record the data and file the report after the event. That's perfect.

KC1TAC JOTA Report


One outcome of our report survey was a reminder from KC1TAC that they did provide a report – for 2013. I had missed it then and I'll note I missed a few 2014 reports. Check out the KC1TAC report for some insight on a great event.
