It is one week ago that the Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) was held world wide. During this event, scout troops all over the world make contact using amateur radio. I have been present at Scouting Dirk Duyvel in Alkmaar for the past 20 years or so, and this year was no exception.
What was exceptional is that we were the organisers of the regional JOTAcross game with 16 groups participating.
The shack was built inside an old english double decker bus, and the theme for the JOTAcross was “back to the future”. We had also made sure a DeLorean was present, complete with burning skidmarks.
