Now, are you wondering what exactly is JOTA? JOTA is an international scouting event which brings scouts from all over the world to the radio. During this time scouts and guest will have the opportunity to talk to one another over HAM radios. At this event we will have a Merit Badge/Belt loop midway, bringing you the opportunity to earn and learn about various merit badges and belt loops.
