GBØWHT Jamboree on the Air JOTA

South Cheshire ARS will be active along with Wilson House Scout Troop from their HQ for the Scouts annual international Jamboree on the Air.

 

Due to take place on 20 - 22 October 2017 the Jamboree on the Air is an annual event in which half a million Scouts and Guides all over the world make contact with each other by means of amateur radio. Short-wave radio signals carry their voices to virtually any corner of the world.

 

The use of amateur radio means that many Scouts get the opportunity to discover the skills of wireless radio techniques and electronics. JOTA is also the only event that offers each individual Scout the opportunity to speak to other Scouts across the world.

 

You can register to take part or find out more information by emailing jota@scouts.org.uk
