Are you ready for JOTA-JOTI 2023? Who will you catch up with? Where will they be? Where will you be?

JOTA-JOTI (Jamboree On The Air – Jamboree On The Internet) is a World-Wide Scout and Guide event. It started in 1957 as a way of Scouts and Guides all over the world communicating with each other using Amateur Radio (the original JOTA).

In the 1990’s the internet (JOTI) was added to make the current JOTA-JOTI event, which is held on the third full weekend in October each year.

Will you be participating? Can you add some activities that will help achieve your milestones? What about doing something related to an SIA? The opportunities for radio, communications, electronics and STEM as JOTA-JOTI activities are endless.
