JOTA /JOTI is an annual event in which Scouts and Guides all over the world speak to each other by means of amateur radio contacts and use of the internet. Scouting experiences are exchanged and ideas are shared.
When Scouts want to meet young people from another country they usually think of attending a World Jamboree or another international gathering. But few people realize that each year about half-a-million Scouts and Guides "get together" over the airwaves for the annual Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA) / Jamboree-on-the-Internet (JOTI). Modern communication technology offers Scouts the exciting opportunity to make friends in other countries without even leaving home.
