WHAT IS THE JAMBOREE-ON-THE-AIR (JOTA)?
As shared by JOTA/JOTI Jamboree:
The JOTA is an annual event in which Scouts and Guides all over the world connect with each other by means of amateur radio. Short-wave radio signals carry their voices to virtually any corner of the world. It’s the shear excitement of having a live conversation with a fellow Scout or Guide at some other place in the world that attracts so many young people to this event. JOTA is a real Jamboree during which Scouting experiences are exchanged and ideas are shared.
The use of amateur-radio techniques offers an extra educational dimension for Scouts. Many grasp the opportunity to discover the world of wireless radio techniques and electronics. Thousands of volunteer radio amateurs assist the Scouts over the JOTA weekend with their knowledge, equipment and enthusiasm.
WORLD SCOUT FREQUENCIES
Scout Frequencies are chosen in a segment where low-power, simple stations are transmitting. This allows Scouts to operate such stations from camp sites and still be able to communicate with others.
|Band||Phone (MHz)||CW (MHz)|
|80 m||3.690 & 3.940||3.570|
|40 m||7.090 & 7.190||7.030|
