Apply now to run GB19YOTA

| October 11, 2019

Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) Month takes place each December to encourage youngsters to get on the air and to learn more about the practical side of the hobby.

The RSGB has the call sign GB19YOTA and we’re looking for radio clubs, schools, Scout and Guides groups, Cadet groups, and individuals to activate the call sign or host a station.

Operations can be on HF, VHF, UHF using all modes but all operators should be aged 26 or below.

Each day will be split into three operating slots: 0000 to 1159UTC; 1200 to 1759UTC; and 1800 to 2359UTC but you can also just operate for a few hours if you wish.

All Full licensed RSGB Members or affiliated clubs can register to host the call sign, but Foundation and Intermediate licence holders may operate if they are supervised from the station of a club or the station of a Full licence holder.

To find out more go to and to apply to host the call sign please email with your full name and call sign, your RSGB Membership or affiliation number, and your preferred dates and operating times.
