October 14 – 16, 2022

Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is the largest Scouting event in the world. It is held annually during the third full weekend in October. JOTA uses amateur radio to link Scouts and Radio operators around the world, around the nation, and in your own community. This jamboree requires no travel, other than to a nearby amateur radio operator’s ham shack. It’s a great way to get more youth interested in amateur radio while demonstrating the fun as well as the service aspects via emergency communication of amateur radio. The scope of your JOTA activities is only limited by your imagination.
