The special call sign GB16YOTA is on the air to introduce and promote amateur radio to young people.
It will be operated from a variety of clubs and organisations throughout December.
On Sunday the 10th, the CDXC will be putting the call sign on the air, on the 13th it’s with Otley ARS, from the 14th to the 16th Castle Rushden School will be operating, then the call sign moves to Northern Ireland with Mid-Ulster ARC on the 18th.
Finally for this week it’s off to Scotland next Sunday, the 18th, with Stirling and District ARS.
If you hear GB16YOTA on the air please give them a call, as you might well be giving a young person their first-ever taste of amateur radio.
