YOTA Month 2019

Royal Naval Amateur Radio Society with youngsters from the Sea Cadet Corps

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.
