What is JOTA / JOTI ?

Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) and Jamboree On The Internet (JOTI) is an annual event 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.

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.

JOTI.. you don’t need lots of technical knowledge to join in – just ask the right people to help you.  If running multiple computers you may need a little expertise to help you organise and run JOTI.  All you need is computer(s) connected to the internet. Programs such as mIRC (Windows), Xchat (Linux) or Xchat azure (Mac) will make accessing easier.

To participate in JOTA you must have a licensed Amateur Radio Operator to assist you. Special Scout (or Guide) Amateur Radio Licenses may be available however you do need to register your activity and talk to the JOTA coordinator before the 1st weekend in September.

Registration or fees may be charged by local groups or districts to assist with the costs of providing your JOTA Station.  State coordinators are required to prepare  reports on the event, registration helps to get this accurate.  We encourage all participating groups to purchase and encourage the wearing of the JOTA/JOTI special event badge.
