Jamboree – a large gathering of Scouts who rally at a national or international level
Jamboree on the Internet (JoTI) – as above, but gathering online instead of in real life [IRL]
It was 55 years ago when amateur radio enthusiasts all over the global gathered and shared stories over the airwaves. 16 years ago (1996) this virtual gathering also started using the Internet. Every year since, a virtual Jamboree has been held both on the air and on the Internet (JoTA and JoTI).
JoTI is a fantastic chance for leas, cubs, scouts and venturers to:
- expand their computer communications skills
- practice typing
- learn the “rules of the road” for social networking in a controlled environment
- earn a patch!
JoTI It takes place over the October weekend 20-21st. You can login from wherever you have Internet access by yourself or with some others.
