Last edition (15 June) of kids-day, we noticed that the radio bands were not very crowded with kids. I am very curious how this has been done in other countries and what has been promoted here.
The promotion of YOTA Bulgaria has resulted into a Dutch team.
We are very pleased that we can visit this event and look forward to meet other youngsters.
The Dutch team of winter YOTA 2019 is ready to receive the registrations of participants.

Another important activity this year is to meet youngsters and other people at the HAM radio convention 2019 (https://dvdra.veron.nl/).
On November 2nd, 2019, the 59th Ham Radio Convention will take place in The Netherlands. Organiser is VERON, the Dutch radio society. We have a youngsters place.
Last, but not least we are busy to see if there could come a second edition of a youth edition of our club magazine.
We have seen that the magazine is a good promotion of the amateur radio hobby.
It is also easily accessible and with this you can for example easily approach a school.
Next TTT we hope to tell more about this project.
