JOTA and JOTI with PMR446
PMR446, LPD and CB radio may be used by anyone without licence, so also by every scout. Through gateways connected to the internet you can with these radios easily talk with scouts at the other site of the world. A nice combination of JOTA and JOTI!
The PMR446 handhelds (walkie talkies) are not expensive. For a connetion with a gateway, the radio must have a CTCSS function. Keep this in mind buying a rig. The CTCSS has to be set to 20. Take a look at the list of gateways for the locations of gateways and which channels they use.
You can also try to make direct contacts (DX) with PMR446 handhelds. For this channel 8 with or without CTCSS 8 is used.
