The 12th Andover Cubs and Scouts took part in the annual Jota/Joti (Jamboree On The Air / Jamboree On The Internet) on the weekend of the 18th to the 20th October 2019. The event is the largest online/on air world Scout Jamboree, with over 2 million participants, celebrating the global citizenship of the scouting movement.
The Andover district were invited to the headquarters of the 2nd Andover (Sea Scouts) at East Cholderton to participate in a range of communication activities, including learning the NATO phonetic alphabet, morse code, using CB amateur radio, digital radio and online ‘JOTI’ chat rooms. These devices enabled our group to talk to other scouts from Wales, Canada, Italy and France to name but a few. Our thanks to the district organisers and the 2nd Andover for their hospitality.
