Jamboree On The Air

The 64th Annual Jamboree On The Air will be held on October 14-16, 2022. Jamboree-on-the-Air,
or JOTA, is the largest Scouting event in the world. It is held annually on the third full weekend in
October. JOTA uses amateur radio to link Scouts and hams around the world, around the nation,
and in your community. This jamboree requires no travel other than to a nearby amateur radio
operator’s ham shack. Many times you can find the hams will come to you by setting up a station
at your Scout camporee, at the park down the block, or perhaps at a ham shack already set up at
your council’s camp.
