JOTA 2014

The 57th Jamboree On The Air –  World-Wide JOTA-JOTI October 17, 18, 19, 2014

2014Badge

Call Sign: VK3SBA – Pax Hill

I will be operating a JOTA radio station all day Saturday the 18th and until midday Sunday the 19th October at Pax Hill scout camp.

This is a an annual Scouting event, JOTA links Scouts around the world via Amateur Radio. According to the World Scout Bureau, JOTA is the largest Scouting event in the world, with nearly 750,000 Scouts participating from 6000 stations in 150 countries around the world. Scouts of any age can participate, from Cub to Venture crew members.

This is not a contest as the idea is to contact other Scout stations and allow as many Scouts as possible to talk to other Scouts and learn about who they are and what they are doing.

During the day there will be opportunities to contact scouts in Australia with international opportunities late afternoon and early evening.

All welcome. Please call to confirm

There is a charge of $2 to cover the cost of the official badge.
