1 December YOTA Month
The swedish youth team, SK0YT arranged a camp at SK7AX, SVARK amateur radio club. The camp gathered 5 youngsters from Sweden and one from Germany, currently studying in Sweden. During the weekend, we activated the callsign SH9YOTA. There was an article about the event published in the swedish QTC paper afterwards. The event generated positive response from the other parts of the swedish board.
There was also a day activity in Sundsvall, where SA3BPG, Markus activated the callsign together with three local youngsters. There was only three partici- pants but everybody were invited.

The problem in sweden is still the geography. It’s hard to organize camps, to which people can get easily and still get enough participants since the travel time often is about 4-6h for a majority of the paricipants.
