National JOTA Organization
Each Scout Association is requested to appoint a National JOTA Organizer (NJO). This NJO can co-ordinate the JOTA participation of Scouts in his country. He or she can also serve as the point of contact for JOTA information. The NJO will be able to bring Scouts into contact with radio amateurs and vice versa.
The National JOTA Oragnizer:
- functions at a national level within his Scout Association (most NJO's are a member of an Association's international committee);
- is preferably someone with his own amateur radio licence, or at least with a vast knowledge of amateur radio;
- is the Scout Association's representative to the national amateur radio organization;
- has the required organizational skills to support the participating scout stations in his country;
- receives the full support, both organizational and financial, from the Scout Association's headquarters. Countries with large numbers of Scouts taking part often have a team to assist the NJO, a radio-scouting committee. The actual organization details differ from country to country, depending on local needs and regulations.
