JAMBOREE ON THE AIR
JOTA is an annual event, this coming weekend (21/22nd) in which Scouts 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 at some other place in the world that attracts so many young people to this event.
