YOTA 2017 wraps up

| August 11, 2017

This weekend sees the end of a fabulous YOTA 2017 week.

It has been action-packed and a great success.

Eighty young radio amateurs from 26 countries have enjoyed trying out new aspects of amateur radio as well as making new friends.

After a tense start at the ISS contact on Tuesday, twelve young radio amateurs were able to put their questions to astronaut Paolo Nespoli, IZ0JPA.

It was truly a night to remember for all the participants, every one present at the YOTA event itself, plus those watching from around the world via the BATC internet video stream.

IARU Region 1 President Don Beattie, G3BJ and Hilary Claytonsmith, G4JKS visited the YOTA camp and were impressed by the skills and enthusiasm shown by the YOTA teams.
