December is Youth on the Air (YOTA) Month

This is from the Southgate Amateur Radio News. I’m trying to arrange a sked with one or more of them with our station at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, WA2HOM…Dan

Youth on the Air (YOTA)After the success of the Youngsters On The Air events in the summer, we decided that it’s time to do some more action! During the whole month of December several countries will become active with YOTA as suffix in the callsign.

The idea for this is to break the ice for some youngsters and take the microphone in the hand.  As seen over the years the YOTA-group is growing fast and every week more youngsters are asking to participate.

You want to hear us on the air?  Listen for Youngsters On The Air callsigns in the whole month of December! At least 17 stations from 14 countries with young HAM’s will be active. We would be happy if you try to work one or more of the following callsigns:

EA7URA/YOTA
EI0YOTA
ES5YOTA
ES9YOTA
LY5YOTA
OH2YOTA
OK2YOTA
OM9YOTA
OM13YOTA

PA6YOTA
S513YOTA
