KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, April 14, 2015 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) and Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI) in their 57th and 18th year of operation, respectively, saw over 1.3 million Scouts and Guides communicate with one another across town and around the world.
They learned that it was snowing in Canada and raining in Malaysia. They encountered new accents and new languages. They discovered new technologies, new cultures, made new friends, and had a great deal of fun throughout the weekend of 18-19 October 2014. It was a worldwide learning experience from dawn to dusk and well into the night.
JOTA uses amateur radio for communication. At the event, nearly 20,000 licensed amateur radio operators put almost 12,000 stations on-the-air using state-of-the-art technology as well as a wide variety of other forms of communication – from Morse Code to satellite communication and even bouncing radio signals off the moon.
