JOTA - Jamboree on the Air, October 19 and 20, 2019

Jamboree on the Air (JOTA)

October 19 and October 20, 2019   

Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is the largest Scouting event in the world. JOTA uses amateur radio to link Scouts and hams around the world, around the nation, and in your own community.

Scouts of any age can participate, from Cub Scouts to Scouts BSA and Venturers. Once at the amateur radio station, the communication typically involves talking on a microphone and listening on the station speakers. Participants typically chat and may exchange information such as name, location, Scout rank, age, and hobbies.

The stations you’ll be communicating with can be across town, across the country, or even around the world! The World Scout Bureau reported that the 2017 JOTA-JOTI event had over 1.5 million Scout participants from more than 160 countries.
