For 2017, Scouts WA has created the following resources to help participants - Youth and Leaders alike - to get involved with JOTA/JOTI, no matter where in WA you may live! You can join the Jamboree at an Event Base, or from home; it's up to you! Expect to meet Scouts and Guides from around the world with JOTA/JOTI, and even in WA at the Event Bases.
To help Groups and Sections know where their nearest Base they can book in to visit is, we have created a contact list. Bases have indicated their preference for drop-in visits, or if they prefer or require bookings to be made. Don't leave it to the last minute!
Interested to know how to setup your computer for JOTA/JOTI this year? This friendly helper guide is what you need to get started with - no matter if you're at home, your Scout Hall, or elsewhere! Use you laptop, desktop, tablet or phone - and get ready!
Your guide to running a JOTA Base in 2017, this quick guide is designed to answer any quick questions and to be used alongside someone who already has a Ham Radio License.
Scheduled for broadcast at 1pm on the Saturday, you can find out how to listen to this and get involved with this part of JOTA/JOTI. The Address only goes for 90 seconds in total, and we are hoping to have all Scouts and Guides from across Australia able to be involved with the address. This has been pre-recorded by the Chief Scout of Australia: His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) Governor-General of Australia; and the Chief Guide of Australia: Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove.
For Groups: If you are visiting a JOTA/JOTI Base, the Base Coordinator will have a supply of Badges for you to receive when you visit on the weekend. Should they run out, send an email after the weekend and we will sort it out.
For Individuals: If you participated in JOTA/JOTI from home and didn't get to visit a Base, send an email after the weekend and we will sort it out too.
