Special callsign granted for YOTA event

| July 4, 2014

The Youngsters on the Air event at Wolverhampton on 19 and 20 of July has been granted an NoV to use the callsign GB1YOTA on site. The YOTA team are most grateful to Ofcom for the permission. The YOTA UK event has been timed to coincide with the IARU Region 1 YOTA gathering in Finland and it is hoped that GB1YOTA will be able to make contact with the Finnish station. Activities at the UK event include workshops on Summits on the Air, satellite working, digital modes, Intermediate practical assessments and Centenary PSK receiver building, a barbecue and an ARDF contest, all of which have been arranged by young amateurs, for young amateurs. Bookings for YOTA UK are still being taken via the RSGB Shop and you can follow YOTA UK on Twitter using @yota_uk
