- Despite the short amount of time that has passed since our team was in South Africa for YOTA 2018, I feel that the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) has made an appreciable amount of progress. The Youth Committee is now supporting the birth of two new university clubs: one in Cardiff University and a second at Bath University. Myself, Ben and Nathan, who are new to the Youth Committee, have been welcomed into our roles; with Ben organising the UK’s YOTA Month stations, and myself working with new University clubs. I think this shows great promise for the year to come, and the future of Amateur Radio in the UK.
