In 2019 JOTA-JOTI will take place 18 – 20 October
Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) and Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI) is an annual event that occurs on the 3rd weekend in October each year. During this event up to 500,000 Scouts and Girl Guides from all over the world can make contact with each other by means of amateur radio or on the internet.

Madison age 10 joined JOTI via Skype
“I talked to people on the other side of the world. I spoke to French Polynesia and Taiwan. The French Polynesia people sang a song to us. The Taiwan people showed us their uniform. The Taiwan uniform was blue. It was fun and I would do it again. I hope that next year I will not be so shy when I’m speaking to them.”
Holly age 13 also joined via Skype
I thought that it was a great experience being able to do JOTA-JOTI as I had never done it before. Some of the places I talked to were England (Leeds, London, Leicestershire where my Nan was born), USA (Lake Tahoe), Australia (Perth), Denmark, South Africa, Japan, Stewart Island NZ, Taiwan (Taipei), Pakistan (Karachi), Canada (Ontario), Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Mexico, Bangladesh (messaging) and Honduras. I liked being able to communicate with other people and I got to learn lots of different things about all of the different countries.
