Jamboree on the Internet
JOTI or Jamboree On The Internet is an annual event that is planned to coincide with JOTA, (Jamboree On The Air), which is an annual event normally held over the third weekend in October every year. The Idea of using the Internet over JOTA started about twelve years ago, and has snowballed in popularity. We are proud to have been among the first participants who started twelve years ago, and for us, JOTI has become the major event, even superseding JOTA.
