join the annual Jamboree-On-The-Air (JOTA), using
our special call sign GB0PG.
This event will take place at the Scout Hall over the weekend 20th and 22nd October 2017. For new members JOTA gives 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 traveling!

At previous JOTA's we have been able to talk to stations as far away as USA, Canada, Australia and Falkland Islands. At past JOTAs we spoke to the following countries England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, USA, Finland, France, Greece, Holland, Luxembourg, Italy, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Sweden.
Cubs & Scouts from PG and other groups in Maidenhead will have the opportunity to pass their Communicators Badge.
