What?

As you may well know, NOTA Norway was scheduled to be held in the upcoming weekend from 10.-13.04. The event was postponed/canceled until further notice because of the COVID-19. On the NOTA camp, there would have been two HF-stations with the callsign LA1YOTA spreading the voice of youth all around the world. 

Even though NOTA is not going to happen during this Easter, we still want to unite as Nordics and give other amateur radio operators a chance to talk with us. As of this, we will be having NOTA activation skeds during the upcoming weekend! 

When?

Following stations will be on the air on the written days: 

  • LA1YOTA on Friday 10th

  • OH2YOTA on Saturday 11th

  • SK8YOTA on Sunday 12th

  • TF3YOTA on Monday 13th

 

The stations will be on HF on told days in variable times depending on the operator. We will be reporting about the exact times and frequencies on our social media’s @hamyota_official and @nordicsontheair as well as Youngsters On The Air Telegram-group. 

Awards!

For this event, we will not be sending any QSL-cards. Instead, we will have an award system with a limited amount of awards. More info coming later.
