YOTA 2017 – What happened?



YOTA 2017 included a week-long range of wireless technology activities

There was a special event station, a buildathon, antenna building, an Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) contest and a Summits on the Air (SOTA) activation.

There was also a visit to Ofcom’s Radio Monitoring Station at Baldock, Bletchley Park—including the National Radio Centre—and the Science Museum.

We had help from a number of clubs, including Loughton and Epping Forest ARS, Radio Society of Harrow, Camb-Hams and the Radio Scouting leaders from Gilwell Park.

Regional events

The RSGB’s regional team and clubs all over the country suppored YOTA 2017 by putting on their own events for young people during the YOTA 2017 week.
