2018 JOTA-JOTI logo and theme….at HamRadio Friedrichshafen

The annual logo for this year’s JOTA-JOTI event will be presented at a special place this year: the international amateur-radio convention HamRadio in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

The World JOTA-JOTI Team is present at HamRadio, together with a group of volunteers, to present the youth radio adventure and promote the radio-scouting activities for an audience of radio amateurs and authorities from many different countries.

Only Scouting radio-amateurs visiting HamRadio are invited to attend the “Radio-Scout meet”
in Halle A1 of the Friedrichshafen Messe,
Friday 1 June
16:00 – 17:00 local time (or 14:00 – 15:00 GMT)

The Radio-Scouting stand is at location A1-736, the largest stand in the centre of the Hall.

Hannu Rättö and Richard Middelkoop of the WOSM team will reveal how the JOTA-JOTI logo looks like for 2018 and what the annual theme is. If the infrastructure allows, we will live stream the presentation over the JOTA-JOTI Facebook page.

Details of HamRadio are available at:

Len Jarret, VE3MYF, silent key

Dear friends in Scouting,
With sadness we inform you that the former World JOTA Organizer, Len F. Jarrett, has gone home on 15 December 2017 at the age of 96 years.
Len F. Jarrett, VE3MYF, was the Director of Administration of the World Scout Bureau for nearly 30 years, serving in England, Canada and Switzerland as the Bureau changed location. He resigned as a full-time employee in 1981 and has subsequently been employed, on a part-time basis, as a consultant, working from his home in Canada and making periodic trips back to Geneva for another three years. After that, he worked on JOTA in a volunteer capacity. Len Jarrett received the Bronze Wolf Award in 1973.
He has been involved in the Jamboree-On-The-Air from its inception and has acted as World JOTA Organizer from the 2nd JOTA in 1959 until the 31st JOTA in 1988.
Len has literally built the JOTA from an idea to the world-wide event it is today. He made a difference to us all.
