Jamboree On The Air / Jamboree On The Internet
3rd Weekend in October – Please click below for 2015 JOTA JOTI opening address.
Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) and Jamboree On The Internet (JOTI) is an annual virtual global camp in which around 500,000 Scouts and Guides from all over the world make contact with each other by means of amateur radio and the internet. Have a look at the International Link to Register your Group where you can find helpful links and activities. By registering at this site you can tell the world how well you did. This information helps you tell the world what you got up to, and it helps organizers know numbers of participants and how it went.
Last year’s JOTA-JOTI had a special broadcast by Governor General of Australia, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), who recorded a message to Scouts and Guides in Australia for JOTA-JOTI.
Through JOTA-JOTI every Member of Scouts Australia can make friends, exchange stories, experience different cultures and have fun as part of the largest activity in world Scouting. JOTA-JOTI also gives Youth Members an awareness that they belong to a worldwide Movement. Check out all the information at Australian Jota Joti Site
You don’t need any technical knowledge to join in – just ask the right people to help you. Anyone with an average knowledge of computers can help you organise and run JOTI – all you need is a computer that’s connected to the internet. To participate in JOTA you must have a licensed Amateur Radio Operator to assist you. There are around 15,000 of these in Australia, and your operator will provide all the necessary equipment and expertise. The Wirelesss Institute of Australia website can help with Queensland affiliated clubs and their contact details.
Event Badges can be ordered from the Scout Shop
