Scout Patrols in our Group will be participating in the 55th World Scout JOTA event and 16th JOTI event. This event takes place on 20th / 21st October 2012.

The patrols will try keeping contact with other Scouts using a JOTI station and will also be testing a software package "HamSphere" as JOTA stations. The HamSphere software provides the same functionality and look of a real Ham Radio.

The main difference is the communication is done via Internet and via a number of servers throughout the World.

Below is a picture of the software graphics. The Scout Patrols are looking forward to hearing from you. Look for the following call signs 44HS250 and 44HS277 in the LOG/QSL screen of the HamSphere software.
