The Jamboree on the Air (JOTA 2014) will be held on the 18th and 19th October, (this weekend). And as usual radio amateurs in Sri Lanka will be assisting scouts and girl guides to come together to spend two happy days on the airwaves contacting each other.
This also gives an opportunity to take amateur radio to the youth of this country. Many of the radio amateurs of today got their exposure to Amateur Radio due to the JOTA. We urge our radio amateurs to give out their best to make this event a great success.
We salute the operators who take their equipment out, camp overnight and bar some hardship too, to give the youth of this country an enjoyable Jamboree time.
