About JOTA and JOTI

The third weekend in October is the Jamboree of the Air (JOTA) and Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI). It's the biggest activity in Scouting, and there's nothing like it anywhere else.

Sydney North Region Scouts and Northern Sydney Girl Guides hold a JOTA/JOTI Camp on this weekend where they use Amateur Radio and Computers to communicate with other Scouts and Guides around the world.

You can find out more about the camp by going to the Camp Information page.

About this website

This website provides information for those attending the camp. It is also intended as a resource for those looking for information about JOTA, JOTI, Amateur Radio, computers, the Internet, and related information that can be used to obtain the various Scout and Guide technology badges.

The Menu Bar across the top of the page (darker colour with white text) links to all the main categories on the site.

Immediately below this is the Location Bar, which changes as you select a different Menu Bar item. This shows which category the current page is in. Each of the steps is a link you can click on.

The menu on the left of each page contains links to related topics. Typically all the links within the text on the page will be shown here as a summary. It also contains links to any external sites referred to on the page. These are coloured slightly darker in the menu. In the body of the page they have a little arrow icon next to the link.

The Site Map lists all the pages on this site. You also get the site map if you try to go to a page that doesn't exist.

Links are colour coded based on the destination.

You might also see some items that look like this. Often they will be a cryptic looking group of letters, known as an acronym. Hover the mouse to see the meaning of the acronym.
