Youngsters’ GB16YOTA on the air

| November 25, 2016

Every December, the IARU organises Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) month, which is a month-long activity specifically aimed at getting young people operating amateur radio.

It is not a contest but there is an award to chase.

The UK station, GB16YOTA, will be put on the air by Sandringham School ARC on 1 December, Sidmouth ARS on 2 December, and by Durham and District ARS on the 3rd.

Worcester RAA will be operating the call sign on the 4th.

If young amateurs cannot get to these stations to take part, they can still join in by working as many YOTA stations as they can during December.

Last year about 30 countries took part and there is an IARU award for working the YOTA special event stations.
