Once agin ES5TV opened his station doors for the well known YOTA Youth Contesting Program participating youngsters during ARI DX contest as always. This year we didn’t put together such a big team to compete in M/M category, but looks like we did put together another M/S world winning team. We were a 5 operator team, 3 of them were youngsters under the age of 26 – Carmen ES5CAMA, Mari ES5MARI and me Kris YL3JA. We had two OMs as well, Kaspars YL1ZF and Jüri ES5JR. We had another team for the stuff in kitchen and food, that was my girlfriend Endija (let’s say that she’s from YL1ZT and YL1XN clubs hihi). Another team consists of Valery ES5QA who was the main cheerleader and sauna operator. Contest was great as always, with just a few little issues, like flexRadio suddenly wanted to make an update, but otherwise everything worked smoothly. It’s always interesting to participate in this kind of contest, jumping between 3 modes. Anyway, thank you to Tonn (ES5TV) again for letting youngsters participate from your “big gun station”. It was a big pleasure for all of us and hopefully there will be more youngsters joining the YCP soon, it is real fun!
In behalf of the team,
73 de Kris, YL3JA
