On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
Jamboree On The AirThe 56th Jamboree On The Air will take place on October 19-20, 2013.
Jamboree on the Air is the largest Scouting event in the world. In 2012 JOTA had nearly 700,000 Scout participants from more than 13,500 amateur radio stations in operation from 150 countries around the world.
The Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is an annual Scouting event that uses amateur radio to link Scouts, including Venturers, around the world, around the nation, and in your own community. Held on the third full weekend of October each year, this worldwide jamboree requires no travel, other than to a nearby radio amateur's ham shack. Many times the hams will come to you by setting up at a Scout camporee, or perhaps they already have a ham shack at your council's camp. There are many ways to get involved in JOTA.
