The UK has had another successful YOTA Month, with 14 different schools / institutions taking part. We estimate that roughly 300 young people have come into contact with our stations, which is a huge success.

This year, the RSGB Youth Team met up at Bletchley Park, to run their own YOTA Month station. We made over 600 QSO’s and interacted with lots of young people who were visiting the museum, and attending the “Introduction to Amateur Radio” workshop.
Peter M0SWN has continued his work at Swansea University in getting students more involved with Amateur Radio. He is pleased to report that 7 of his members took the Foundation Exam in December, all of who passed. He has also been in contact with students from other universities, with the intention of helping them set up their own clubs.
