Nicosia, Cyprus – Tuesday, 15.05.2022

The first YOTA contest session of 2022 is coming up soon. Take the opportunity to test your stations a week prior the CQWPX CW contest, or better yet, open your radio station to the next generation and become a station sponsor. Give the next generation a chance at the radio and work the active ones in the YOTA Contest.

Thus, we want to remind you that we will have three (3) YOTA Contest sessions coming up in 2022 again. Lots of participants enjoyed the 2021 sessions already and thus we hope to get even more people involved into the events this year.

The upcoming three sessions will be taking place on the following days:

1st round | 21st May 2022 | 0800 – 1959 UTC
2nd round | 23rd July 2022 | 1000 – 2159 UTC
3rd round | 30th December 2022 | 1200 – 2359 UTC

So, are you ready to compete within the next YOTA Contest? Everyone in the ham radio community can take part, it takes place three times per year and only lasts 12 hours. Its aim is to increase the youngsters’ activity on the air, strengthening the reputation of the YOTA program and demonstrate the support for youngsters across the world.

During the past year we have received several rule translations into various languages. A big thank you to the contributors! So, if you are not that fluent in English, check them out here.

If you have any further questions after reading through the rules, please go to our FAQ page to see if your question has been answered already. If you still have a question, feel free to drop the YOTA Contest Committee an email at and we are happy to reply.

On behalf of the YOTA Contest Committee,
