The ARRL report as of October 1, more than 350 US amateur radio stations had signed up to take part in the 2015 Jamboree On The Air (JOTA)
The 58th annual event takes place October 16-18, and JOTA organizers are urging all who plan to participate to register, so they can provide a list of participating stations and their locations.
JOTA is aimed at fostering Scout-to-Scout communication across borders and is the largest Scouting event in the world with some 1.3 million participants worldwide.
The K2BSA call sign will be in use for JOTA from every US call district as well as from KH6 and KL7.
