Jamboree On The Air 2017 was over and Scouts of South Jakarta were surprisingly joined this remarkable event with more than 500 scouts participants. Since 2010, we were helping to organize the JOTA station of South Jakarta and in fact this year is absolutely amazing.
Formerly we had coordinating with Kwartir Cabang Pramuka Jakarta Selatan or Scouts of South Jakarta to organize the coaching and workshop related to Amateur Radio and Operating Procedure of Radio Communication several weeks before JOTA.
Thankfully it was happened with a cooperation between Scouts, ORARI of South Jakarta and The City of South Jakarta Major Office (Kantor Walikota Jakarta Selatan). At least 80 scouts was attending the coaching and workshop. It was a first time ever happened in a history of JOTA in South Jakarta.
A week later, the D-Day, ORARI Lokal Jakarta Selatan (ORARI of South Jakarta) built and organize four JOTA stations. First at Kwarcab JOTA station of YB0ZSD as a Main Hub station, the others are YC0ZSDA JOTA Kwartir Ranting Kebayoran Lama (MAN 4 School), YC0ZSDB JOTA Kwartir Ranting Cilandak (CSJS), and YC0ZSDC Kwartir Ranting Tebet (SMA 37 School).
Totally more than 500 Scouts gathered in South Jakarta JOTA stations, separated by four stations and it was an amazing achievement for our JOTA organization this year. Of course, it will not happen without a solid and nice cooperation between three institutions : ORARI, Pramuka Kwartir Cabang Jakarta Selatan (Scouts of South Jakarta) and The City Major Office of South Jakarta.
Our great appreciation and a big thank for ORARI South Jakarta HQ, ORARI Daerah DKI Jakarta, Pramuka Kwartir Cabang Jakarta Selatan (Scouts of South Jakarta), and Kantor Walikota Jakarta Selatan (The City Major Office of South Jakarta) for an excellent and astonishing teamwork in this glorious event.
Two of YBDXC member was involved in JOTA 2017 at South Jakarta, YDØSDD Ridwan Saleh as an Instructor for Digital Mode and YCØOST Irsan as a JOTA Station Manager of YC0ZSDA. We also gave a big applause and apreciation for any ORARI friends, especially YBDXC members around Indonesia were so active and involved in their local JOTA stations.
Hopefully we always stands side by side with young Scouts for our next amateur radio generation.
