Don’t Forget to File Your JOTA-JOTI Location Report

Last year we reported that over a million Scouts were active during JOTA-JOTI weekend. Those annual numbers are compiled from reports submitted by National JOTA-JOTI Coordinators. Your coordinator will be assembling the full report for all locations in your country.

Make Sure Your Report is Included — Collect Your Information This Weekend

Contact your National JOTA-JOTI Coordinator with your location’s information. You can find the full list for each country at National JOTA-JOTI Coordinator. They may also have a reporting system where you can submit your information online or via email.

The information they’ll be collecting includes:

  • Number of participants (Scouts and Guides)
  • Number of visitors (non-Scouts)
  • Number of amateur radio operators
  • Number of contacts
  • List of countries contacted
  • Communication channels used

Send Photos, Videos, and Scout Stories

Your National JOTA-JOTI Coordinator would be delighted to receive some of the best photos and videos from your event.

You can also provide short stories and Scout impressions of your JOTA-JOTI weekend as well. You can find a suggestions with examples at Station Report Best Practices.

Watch for the 2017 World JOTA-JOTI Report

Collect your numbers this weekend, snap some great photos and videos, and then provide them to your National JOTA-JOTI Coordinator.

Watch for the World JOTA-JOTI 2017 Report. We’ll have it completed and published early next year. It’s all part of celebrating the fun of 2017 while getting ready for 2018.
