The yearly JOTA is a worldwide event, and thus it is independent
of national events. The 36th JOTA is scheduled on the weekend
of 16/17 October 1993.
However, this shouldn't prevent you from installing a voice/phone or
RTTY station during your national jambo and get on the air.
You can try the official world scout frequencies (which I'm listing
below) or any other official national and international calling
frequencies to contact other scouts and amateurs in the US and
around the world.

A scouting chat session on IRC via RTTY... what fun :-)
Let us know your schedule on scouts-l and rec.scouting if you plan
to do it, so that you'll have some scouts online waiting for you
at that time.
