YOTA Month deadline extended

| October 7, 2016

We often hear that young people are our future and we just need a good reason to bring amateur radio to their attention.

The Tim Peake ARISS contacts resulted in a number of new school radio clubs starting up and hosting a YOTA station could do the same.

December is YOTA Month across Europe and Africa and the RSGB is coordinating the UK participants.

In short, any Affiliated club, school, college, university or youth group can apply to host the special call sign GB16YOTA for a day—or two—during December.

The only stipulation is that the event must be aimed at getting youngsters on the air.

The special event station can be the main attraction, or you can wrap other activities around it.

A report on last year’s event was on page 22 of the April 2016 RadCom.

The deadline for applications has been extended to Saturday, 15 October, so there is no time to waste!

If you are interested in joining in, or would like more information, ask for an application form from yota.month@rsgb.org.uk.
