6th Asia-Pacific Regional Air/Internet Jamboree 7-8 August 2

Postby vu2jos » Thu Jul 01, 2010 9:42 am

The Asia-Pacific Region of WOSM is pleased to introduce the 6th Asia Pacific Regional Air-Internet Jamboree, following the success since the first Jamboree in 2004. Persekutuan Pengakap Malaysia (PPM) will host this year’s event on 7-8 August 2010.
The Air-Internet Jamboree is a regional event in which Scouts can contact each other by means of amateur radio and through the Internet. Having a live conversation with a fellow Scout in some ther place in the world gives the same excitement like having a normal Jamboree on the land minus the normal expenses. Just like the normal Jamboree, the Air-Internet Jamboree is also an event during which Scouting experiences are exchanged and ideas are shared. It’s a great and
unique opportunity for Scouts of all age ranges to communicate with each other as if they are nearby when in actual fact they are all in their own countries. Indeed, Radio Scouting eliminates the distances and fosters a closer relationship of the worldwide Scouting movement.



All State Associations of Bharat Scouts and Guides are requested are requested to take necessary arrangements for the success of the APR JOTA /JOTI. You can contact Amateur Radio Operators in their area to organize the JOTA /JOTA.



The frequencies for JOTA is


    Band SSB (Phone) CW (Morse)

EchoLink



Echo link is a system that connects Amateur Radio stations to each other via the internet. In fact, you do not need any amateur radio equipment to make a contact with radio stations throughout in the world. You will require a PC with a soundcard, speakers and a microphone. Your voice is carried over the internet to another Amateur Radio station which is also connected to the internet and may or may not be using radio. Your amateur radio is required to register with Echolink, a process that takes a few days, so register early. To be sure, register with Echo link before 1 July 2010 and then try it out before the Air-Internet Jamboree. To download and register your copy of Echolink, visit www.echolink.org
