In some states of Australia, public health orders mean guides and scouts are not able to participate in face to face activities. Unless there is an amateur radio operator in their household, making an "on air" radio contact with other guides and scouts will not be possible over the 2021 JOTA weekend.

Alternatively, guides and scouts can participate in a range of radio and communication related activities which can be be undertaken by an individual youth member or in a group with the assistance of an on line audio / visual conference facility, such as Zoom.

Youth members can delve into sending messages using semaphore flags and Morse code, air craft spotting with a difference, play battle ships with a twist, chat over a piece of string, search for distant radio stations, and much more.

Over 10 different activities are described in the JOTA 2021 Activities booklet, with varying degree of difficulty, something for everyone. Youth members can challenge others in their group to achieve the best score.
