Amateur Radio operators are needed to promote and support the Girl Scout World Thinking Day on the Air in February at local Girl Scout Councils.
The Girl Guide and Girl Scout World Thinking Day on the Air (TDOTA) event is held on the third weekend in February. This is a weekend close to World Thinking Day - the day when Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world remember the founders of Guiding and Scouting as well as their sisters in WAGGGS - the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. TDOTA is known as Guides on the Air (GOTA) in Canada.
Next TDOTA/GOTA will be Saturday 16th February and Sunday 17th February 2013.
GOTA began in 1985 to celebrate 75 years of Guiding in Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia. GOTA has grown each year with more countries taking part, and most Canadian Call Areas now have an operator sponsoring the GGC suffix e.g. VE4GGC, VE7GGC
Girl Guides and Girl Scouts also particpate in JOTA in October each year.
