Update from Trusted Partner Service Kring JOTA-JOTI

JOTA-JOTI is coming soon. We want to give you a status of our product sales of this moment.

The orders come in daily with big quantities. The last moment to order where you may count on receiving your products before the JOTA-JOTI is also quickly approaching.

The last day to order and pay your requested products is October 13. Later orders will be handled after JOTA-JOTI because our team is then also busy packing to prepare for their own JOTA-JOTI 2018.

At the moment already one product is completely sold out and that is the SPACE CRUISER.

The Badge will also be sold out very soon. Nametapes and the main kit for this year being the Claplight are available in large enough quantities so there will surely be material enough to expand your JOTA-JOTI with these nice kits. So order NOW please, and process payment before October 13.

Then we want to remind you all that many  solder kits are available throughout the whole year so any day could be a nice day to have a technology program with your Scouts of all ages.

All comments, suggestions, and ideas are always welcome on info@kitbuilding.org

Do have a nice JOTA-JOTI.

Clean Your Cameras — JOTI.tv is Ready for JOTA-JOTI 2018

www.joti.tv is the JOTA-JOTI website to meet other Scouts from around the world. JOTI.tv together with ScoutLink, JOTI Radio and Service Kring is a trusted partner of JOTA-JOTI.

JOTI.tv offers Scouts three ways of communication through video and images. JOTIcafe, Digital Campfire and the Skype Address book.

The JOTIcafe is completely renewed, with a few clicks you can get in contact with Scouts around the world. Just like in a real café the JOTIcafe is a place to meet and have conversations though video calls. Show other scouts your club home, troop building, play a game of charades or explain the badges on your uniform.

What can’t be missed is the Digital Campfire. Super simple and easy to join and fun to see how many Scouts are online during JOTA-JOTI. Already hundreds of Scouts have added their photo to the Digital Campfire. The Digital Campfire is a great way to share your group, JOTA station, club home, troop building or other place to the rest of the world. What you need is a computer and a webcam, connect the Digital Campfire and let it run the whole weekend! Find it at https://www.joti.tv/digitalcampfire/

And of course the Skype Address book! A list of all Skype connected scouts organized by country. Also, if you like, you can join the JOTA-JOTI 2018 Skype group and use Skype for calling other scouts. For more information and to add your Skype address, go to https://www.joti.tv/portal/

Is there some room left on the map?

The JOTA-JOTI Radio base is preparing for the contacts between Scouts world-wide during the upcoming JOTA-JOTI. And there are quite a lot of stations. Not only radio ones, but also many internet ones. So it will be quite a busy weekend.

The World Scout Bureau will activate its main amateur radio station 9M4S in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Most of the WSB Regional support Centres will also take part. The Europe Support Centre will be represented by LX9S from Luxemburg this year.

Yes, there is some space left for you on the map to put your JOTA-JOTI station. You can sign up at the Main Gate here: www.world-jotajoti.info/jamboree-map.

Be fast…we have issued thousands of Jamboree tickets already. Get yours and join in the Travel-Free Jamboree.

 

CQ….CQ….

All you ever wanted to know about the Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) is now one mouse click away…

On the occasion of the 60th JOTA, the story of the JOTA has been updated. With new “old” materials that surfaced from archives.

Discover how the largest annual youth and amateur-radio event on earth started with a coffee meeting in a snack bar. How a visionary Scout leader carried the idea forward and the world embraced it.

And what about those radio waves that connect World Jamborees to the world, ever since 1957? Well no, that appeared to start 10 years earlier, in 1947. One of several new facts that seem almost forgotten, now surface in the new edition of “CQ Jamboree”.

Don’t miss it. Get your full-colour printed copy by following the link below. The printer service offers free shipping cost world-wide now. Use the reduction code “ONESHIP” (valid up to 6 September 2018).

New activity areas and subcamps are open!

We have opened up several new areas on the JOTA-JOTI campsite. Most of them are not completely finished yet but you can already have a look at what is coming to you next October.
Notably at the Global Development Village: it has all the materials for the 2018 theme “Life on Land”. And there is the ECO badge challenge there in the making. Check it out!
