For those of you didn’t know it this weekend is the 50th year of JOTA, where groups of scouts and local radio amateur groups get together and try to contact other people around the country (and sometimes other parts of the world) to pass on a greetings message. Each group has their own unique call sign for this particular event.
It is also 100 years of scouting this year, so it might be th biggest year yet for this event.
I have to apologise as this has nothing to do with SOTA, but it is yet another way of druming up interest in amateur radio amongst young people.
