The 2018 JOTA-JOTI used a virtual Jamboree campsite with lots of activities. We asked the participants for feedback on each area. On a scale from 5-stars (excellent) to 1-star (needs improvement). This is what they found:

The differences are very small. The most popular ones were the WOSM HQ, the staff camp and the Jamboree HQ.

Each registered Scout group can still enter their best picture or fabulous JOTA-JOTI story. e are very curious to see them. Follow the link that you received in your confirmation email (or retrieve it here) to enter your success stories. You can do so up to 1 November 2018.

JOTA and YOTA……

Some 20,000 licensed amateur radio operators will put 12,000 radio stations on the air with state-of-the-art technology for the upcoming JOTA-JOTI event. This offers an excellent opportunity for young radio amateurs to inspire young Scouts with the charms of radio techniques. And for Scouts to share their world with radio amateurs of (nearly) their own age.

The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) have taken an initiative to bring young radio operators and young Scouts together.

One of the main activities for Scouts in this year’s JOTA-JOTI is to exchange badges (as electronic pictures) via Slow Scan Tele Vision (SSTV). With the target to let them experience a different technique combined with a well-known Scout activity to swap badges. SSTV has become so much more accessible with a laptop or smartphone and some software, combining the radio and the digital world. It is in particular for this activity that young amateur radio operators can play an important role in making the connections and discovering the possibilities of SSTV.

So how do you do this? Read all the details here: Young amateurs and JOTA-JOTI 2018.
