For the month of December 2016, the Amateur Radio Community are promoting their annual Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) event, with many YOTA Stations attempting to make many contacts worldwide with each other.
This is an excellent opportunity to get young amateurs in their teens and early 20s to talk with their counterparts on the air.
This is not a formal contest, but a way to get young people on the air and to let them realise that there are hundreds of their peers around the world that feel just the same as they do about the hobby. The main aim is to get our youngsters on the air and for them to make contact with youngsters all over the world.
The League has registered with IARU Region 1 as a Member Society participant and the special call sign ZS9YOTA will be activated during the month of December.
