J.O.T.I. & J.O.T.A. Camp

Date: 26th Oct 2017 Author: Richard Smith

The Cubs and Scouts participated in this years international JOTI / JOTA camp over the weekend of 20th to the 22nd October. JOTI Jamboree on the Internet is in its 21st year and JOTA Jamboree on the Air Waves was 60 years old!

Stockton Amateur Radio club assisted with all the equipment and support for the event.  We were able to speak to Scout’s from all around the world from Japan to America and Ireland to Australia.  The Cubs and Scouts played games asked and answered questions and took part in debates and quizzes it was a fantastic camp and were hoping to do it again in 2018 but make it a District Event? So, watch this space.

Other activities included Morse Code Video Conferencing and International Party. A massive Thank You to Stockton Amateur Radio Club for the equipment and volunteers who helped to run the weekend.
