By | Publication, Youth Contesting Program | No Comments

Unfortunately we have to cancel the next contest in the Youth Contesting Program which was planned at 4O3A. It was scheduled to take part with a youth team in the CQWW RTTY contest next September.
4O3A suffered from fire in the area for a week. Luckily the station house survived. All cables, boxes and control units outside the house suffered from the fire. The pictures are showing the impact of the fire.
4O3A will be rebuilding the station soon and will be available again for YCP.

  • A youth team activated for a weekend PA6YOTA and PD6YOTA from club station PI4CC
  • Many Italian youngsters attended the meeting and shared several activities, such as taking part in a contest from IY4FGM, the location where Marconi transmitted the first radio signals

YOTA key and flag hand over
On Saturday afternoon the official YOTA flag was literally brought from OeVSV booth to the RSGB booth under loud cheering of a group of youngsters. With a ceremony at the RSGB booth the flag and morse key where handed over from the Austrian youngsters to the British youngsters. Which means YOTA UK is now almost going to start, with only 3 weeks left. We are looking forward to the event which will welcome more than 80 participants from around 30 member societies.
