Have you applied to host the call sign for this year’s Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) Month in December 2019?

It is a great opportunity 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 individuals, radio clubs, schools, Scout, Guide and Cadet groups to activate the call sign or host a station.

Operations can be on HF, VHF and or UHF using all modes.

Each day will be split into three operating slots, midnight to 1159UTC, 1200 to 1759 UTC, and 1800 to 2359UTC.

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.

Such stations can be operated by Foundation and Intermediate licence holders provided they are supervised by an appropriate Full licence holder.

The aim of the event is to get operators aged 26 or below on the air.
