YOTA Month 2019

Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) is a group, supported by the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) Region 1, whose aim is to encourage more young people to get involved in amateur radio.

One of its annual events is YOTA Month which takes place each December and youngsters will take part across the region, using call signs with the suffix YOTA and learning more about the practical side of the hobby.

The RSGB has taken part in YOTA Month since 2014 and sees it as an integral part of the Society’s Strategy 2022 as we aim to grow and develop amateur radio, supporting and encouraging active participation in the hobby.

What is the RSGB doing for YOTA Month 2019?

The RSGB has the call sign GB19YOTA and we’re looking for people to activate the call sign or host a station.

Operations can be on HF, VHF, UHF using all modes: SSB, CW FT8 or others, but all operators should be aged 26 or below.

So far we have arranged two weekend events—

If you are interested in joining either of these events please contact us on gb19yota@rsgb.org.uk
