GOTA is: An opportunity for Members of Guiding - from Sparks to Guiders - to talk to other M

embers of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world via amateur radio. Outside Canada, GOTA is known as Thinking Day on the Air ~ TDOTA/GOTA and are held every year on the third full weekend in February.

This is a weekend close to Thinking Day - the day when Girl Guides and Girl Scouts 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. GOTA/TDOTA is a fun way to reach out to some WAGGGS sisters during Guide-Scout week!

Helen Archibald is the coordinator and set up the old GOTA Web site. This website is now gone, but all of the information is here on the CLARA site.

One very interesting piece of news is that HARC  (Halifax Amateur Radio Club) has received the VA1GGC call sign.

Please come and join us next February once again. Thank you to all who participate in Guides-on-the-air.
