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 programme organises a number of projects, including YOTA Month, the IARU Youth Contesting Programme and the YOTA camps—which are held in a different IARU Region 1 country each year.
