December YOTA Month

A month full of fun and QSOs between young people and promoting our hobby!

YOTA is a group of young radio amateurs from IARU Region 1. Most of us are under the age of 26. Each year we get together in different European countries to spend some quality time. Not only just having fun and playing games, we come up with new ideas, new projects, plans for the future, etc. During the other months of the year we gather on the bands and have some fun together, take part in contests or just make some YOTA-skeds.

The goal of YOTA is to welcome new and young amateur radio operators to our beautiful hobby. We live in a world where communication is being digitalized in a way that we almost can’t keep up with. In times like this it’s important to convince people about the importance of our hobby. Together with other youngsters all around the world, we can make the difference and give our hobby the future it deserves!

This year 114 Youngsters from 29 countries in IARU Region 1 and even one country from IARU Region 2 will gather in Wagrain, Austria. We will meet eachother, talk about our hobby and most of all have fun! There will be many activities planned throughout the week so we can learn more about eachoter and especially eachothers cultures and habbits. Want to know more? Have a look on the YOTA Austria page or look at the latest news from Austria!
