Jamboree on the Air

8th Hornchurch Jupiter Cub pack spent the day at Gilwell Park taking part in Jamboree on the Air and Jamboree on the internet.

The primary aim of JOTA/JOTI is to contact other Scout Groups around the world. The cubs used shortwave radio stations to contact other Scouts around Europe, as well as a VHF station contacting more local stations.DSC 0017

The Internet Café was running a variety of methods for making contact with other Scouts online – primarily through the moderated channels on ScoutLink.

Additional activities were electronic kit building. Where we built amplifiers. Weather satellite reception, an amateur TV station where we streamed pictures on the internet, and the latest computer controlled radio receivers. Unfortunately, conditions prevented us from hearing the International Space Station as it passed overhead.

The afternoon was filled with firstly climbing in the Lid on four different climbing activities then outside on the external climbing wall and then the 3g Swing.

During lunch we had a look around Gilwell to see the sights and held a find the largest conker competition.

A good day was had by all.

Bob Wallace
