Welcome to JOTA at Gilwell Park - GB2GP
Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) is taking place from Gilwell Park again this year after the restrictions of the last few years. If you want to contact the team and visitors at the site, please see our contact map and current frequencies here.
We also have a number of other activities listed below for you to try – click on the image or headline of each activity to be taken to its page. Click on the back link to come back to this index page.
It shouldn’t be necessary to pay for any app to take part in JOTA activities!
Receive weather charts using shortwave radio... these charts are broadcast so shipping can receive the latest weather reports when at sea, and have no access to the Internet.
