The 2002 Jamboree On the Internet (JOTI) event is the sixth JOTI to commence since the World Scout Committee's decision that JOTI should become an official international Scouting event.

We opened our doors at 10am and everyone started to arrive. Every one started to use the internet. We used, Internet chat, Web site browsing and E-mail exchange with Scouts in countries all over the world (200 Countries were taking part) we didn`t make contact with all two hundred we did manage to talk to, contact and with Scouts from 24 foreign countries some of which were, New Zealand, Austrailia and the USA.

It was an impressive feeling when you were actually looking at and chatting with Scouts from the other side of the world!

JOTA - Jamboree on the AIR 2002

PG toook part in the annual Jamboree-On-The-Air (JOTA), using our special call sign GB0PG.

This event took place at the Scout Hall over the weekend 19th-20th October 2002. JOTA gave ALL our members, parents and friends the opportunity to talk to other Scout Groups around the world - just like a real Jamboree but without the travelling!

We had a team of local Radio Amateurs, who maned our Radio station at the Scout Hall. We had some very interesting contacts during the weekend. We were able to talk to stations as far afield as USA, Canada and Europe.

Cubs & Scouts from PG and other groups in Maidenhead had the opportunity to pass their Communicators or Radion Communicators Badges.
