It was a great day for local Ham Radio enthusiasts, with plenty to do, plenty of people to share their craft with, and plenty of time on the air talking with people around the world.
For the 60th year in a row, Ham Radio operators around the world were joined by Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts in the 60th anniversary of Jamboree on the Air.
Locally, the event happened in conjunction with the Logandale Fall Festival. Members of the Moapa Valley Amateur Radio club set up their own equipment and a booth on the lawn at the fairgrounds. They invited scouts and others to join them in talking to other Scouts around the world.
The Scouts worked in partnership with a licensed operator who taught them what to say and a little bit about amateur radio.
