This is a special event station commemorating the 100 years from the founding of the scout group of Mosta. The station was operational from the 1st of October 2016 till the end of October 2016. This call was also used during the annual JOTA-JOTI which was held on the 14, 15 and 16th of October 2016. The scouts were on the air during these three occasions and it was a great success.
JOTA-JOTI for the Mosta group was held at the Mosta Local Council so this was a whole town event with the help of the Local Council in providing the said premises. Activity was mostly on HF phone using whatever bands were open at the time of the activity along with monitoring of the 9H1UHF-R repeater being RU70 which is connected to echolink with node number 552882. Anybody who wanted to know where we were on the bands could call us via echolink.
During the jamboree we were also active on 9H1AZ-ND node Malta-9H1AZ-room on C4FM.
The children loved every minute of this activity as we could feel their vibes while communicating with other radio stations. A special thanks goes to you guys out there who understood the meaning of all this and helped us educate these youngsters in the use of ham radio. Some of these youngsters came back for more even after having already done their share on the airwaves and are genuinley interested in taking up ham radio, So thank you once again. Special thanks also goes to Gaetano 9H1AZ, Frans 9H5FM, Matthew 9H1MI, Anthony 9H5FA and last but not least the two Marcos, Marco 9H5SN and Marco 9H1GP for lending a hand in the setup and running of the Jamboree station.
