About Jamboree On The Air
JOTA is a 48-hour worldwide held over the third full weekend in October each year (from Saturday 00:00 to Sunday 23:59 local time no matter where you live) and is the largest yearly scout and guide activity with around 750,000 participants in 2010, increasing by about 15% each year..
Amateur radio operators bring scouts and guides from all over the world together by means of electronic communication, creating awareness, understanding and friendship with people outside their normal living environment.
Call frequencies are allocated for JOTA operation in the MF HF VHF and UHF bands. Scout and guides who participate in JOTA each receive a badge.
JOTA is an excellent opportunity to introduce young people to the world of amateur radio.
