GOTA JOTA - Boy Scouts of America

The Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is an annual Scouting event that uses amateur radio to link Scouts 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 your Scouts involved in JOTA.


Fox HuntFox Hunts

Otherwise knows as Amature Radio Direction Finding or ARDF.  An exciting branch of amateur radio, attracting people of all ages.  ARDF is very similar to orienteering, the major difference being that participants use direction-finding equipment to locate radio transmitters, rather than navigating to known points on a map.  BARC also does mobile hunts that differ from true ARDF events and some on foot single transmitter hunts.
