Participating in the "magic of radio" would be a great experience for my youth members, but where and how to make contact with an amateur radio operator?

Here are a few hints on finding an amateur radio operator and working towards a successful Jamboree On The Air.

  • Ask amongst your friends, family and fellow leaders, you may be surprised.
  • Local amateur radio clubs are a good place to start. Many clubs have a web site or Facebook page. You can find your local radio club by using the "Find Amateur Radio Clubs" link in the Useful Links Menu.
  • Guide and Scout associations have state based JOTA Coordinators, who would be able to assist you with finding a local amateur radio operator and organising a successful JOTA event.

Don't be discouraged if your first contact is not successful. Some operators may not know about JOTA or may have had a bad experience in the past. Ask if there is another amateur radio operator or local amateur radio club, who may be interested. 

If you need any additional information or assistance in making contact with an amateur radio operator or organising a JOTA radio station, you are most welcome to make use of the Contact Us link and I will do my best to reply as soon as possible.

Let's try and make the 60th JOTA an enjoyable and memorable event over the weekend 20th to 22nd October 2017.
