Youngsters on the Air (YOTA)


The Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) programme is an IARU Region 1 initiative aimed at engaging youngsters in amateur radio, as well as supporting amateurs under the age of 26.

The YOTA programme is jointly led by Lisa, PA2LS and Tommy, ON2TD, and organises a number of projects, including YOTA Month, the IARU Youth Contesting Programme, and the YOTA summer event—which is held in a different IARU Region 1 country each year. For further information about YOTA, visit
