The Boy Scouts of America station K2BSA will be on the air during the 2017 National Scout Jamboree, July 18 to July 28, from the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve in West Virginia.

The National Scout Jamoree is a separate event from the Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) that is held later this year.
All information for making a contact with K2BSA during the Jamboree is on the K2BSA website. It lists operating period, frequencies, repeaters, EchoLink, and D-Star options. K2BSA will also publish live updates on Facebook and Twitter of active frequencies.
