JOTA-JOTI is the largest Scouting event in the world with over 1 million Scouts participating across 150+ countries.

The event is held the third weekend of October – for 2016 it’s the 14th, 15th & 16th October.

This is the official World Organization of the Scout Movement’s website for JOTA-JOTI.

This year’s event on 14th – 16th October will be the 38th occasion that Scouts in Horsham have participated in JOTA.

Many may think that communication by radio is ‘old hat’ but the technology has continued to evolve and this year when Tim Peake was based on the European Space Station Scouts had the opportunity to talk with him via their radio sets.

Recently while at an international Scout camp in Finland the fascination of radio communication was clear to see as many young and older Scouts formed waiting lines to speak to others all around the world from the radio station at the site.
