Boys Scouts hold radio Jamboree

The sounds of a Boy Scout Jamboree were not only heard in East Texas Saturday, but around the country.  It was the 51st annual Jamboree On The Air held at Longview's Teague Park.  Each October thousands of scouts and guides in East Texas talk to other scouts through this HAM radio event.  Started in 1958, it's a chance for scouts to learn about other countries. The event was supervised and operated by the Longview's East Texas Amateur Radio Club.
