Jota at Gilwell LogoWelcome to the website of the
Gilwell Park Amateur Radio Station

This website will be the hub of all the information during the Jamboree on the Air weekend, from Gilwell Park Scout Activity Centre. For the rest of the year it will still contain information about the station, and when we are likely to be active - however certain elements like the webcams and the live frequencies won't be running when the station is closed.

Come and join us at Gilwell Park for a day of International Scouting and Adventure in a mix of technology and climbing, bouldering and archery!

Over the weekend of the 18/19th October 2014 Gilwell Park Activity Centre will be hosting the GB2GP Jamboree on the Air and Jamboree on the Internet station, making contact with Scouts the world over. The event is open to all sections from Beavers to Network Scouts. Tickets are available for either a morning or afternoon session at the JOTA station with the other half of the day dedicated to adventerous activites in The Lid - Gilwell's indoor activitiy barn. A day ticket costs £10.00 per participant, including a campfire blanket badge and all the activities in The Lid. Please note: no food or drink is included in this price - please bring your own lunches! Due to the nature of the event, tickets are limited in any session to ensure all participants get to enjoy every aspect of the event. Booking has now opened (click on the 'Buy Tickets' button above to be taken to the booking page) for this year's event, so to ensure you places we recommend you book up early! Last year sold out completely on several of the sessions. A poster is available to download for you to advertise the event to your group.

JOTA/JOTI Activities will include contacting Scouts all over the World using amateur radio and the Internet, as well as various demonstrations of amateur radio modes and techniques, weather satellite reception, electronic kit building and the chance to work towards the communications and technology based activity badges. Our Internet cafe will provide links to other Groups around the world using the JOTI Chatrooms as well as video and skype links. One hightlight from last year included playing battleships with a Group in Finland over the video link! For more details about JOTA and JOTI please visit our dedicated webpages on the subjects.

The adventerous activities in the Lid will include the climbing wall, bouldering wall indoor high ropes and archery and will be on a queue and play basis. Tickets are limited to no more than 50 in any session, so there will be plenty of chance for everyone to have a go.
