Welcome to GB2RSC Chesterfield District Scouts Jamboree on the Air

In the Beginning…

The first Jamboree on the Air was held in 1958 following the success of the amateur radio station at the world scout Jamboree at Sutton Coldfield in 1957. JOTA is the largest international Scouting event in the world with over 500,000 Scouts and Guides taking part.

JOTA & Radio Scouting

Jamboree on the Air is the highlight of the Radio Scouting calendar when Scouts have the opportunity to practice many of the skills they have discovered during the year. The Chesterfield District Scouts Amateur Radio Club anually takes part in JOTA and invites local Scoutgroups to attend and have the opportunity for Scouts to make contact with other Scouts throughout the world.
