The time for the biggest YOTA camp ever has come closer and we are already very excited. We all agree, that it is vital for the future of Amateur Radio Service to attract and promote young operators into our societies.
This year the Austrian Amateur Radio Society OeVSV – celebrating its 90yrs anniversary – is hosting YOTA 2016 summer camp near Salzburg from 16.-23rd July 2016.
About 110 young ham operators in age between 15 to 25 years from 30 countries are invited to spend one week of holiday in Austrian mountains, having fun with Amateur Radio activities and practical workshops,
optimizing their skills in electronics and contesting, but also building bridges in international friendship of Amateur Radio Service and Ham Spirit.
In order to spread the seeds of this wonderful event to other regions, participants from America and Asia are expected for the first time, making this year’s summer camp in Austria a really worldwide event!
So in the name of the Austrian Amateur Radio family, the organizing team and IARU R1, we would like to welcome you to this event and are looking forward to get to know your personality, your ideas and passion for the future of Amateur Radio.
