On October 20th and 21st, local area scouts will have the opportunity to participate in the largest "get together" of scouts around the world. The annual Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) is the largest scouting event in the world bringing together more than one million Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from over 30,000 locations and 150 countries through the use of amateur radio.
