YOTA Month/ Contest
Why Not Join In?
Youth-operated stations around the world will be part of a special event celebrating youth in amateur radio during December. Amateur radio operators aged 25 and younger will be on the air as special event stations around the world throughout December in celebration of youth in amateur radio. YOTA Month stations will be on all bands and modes at various times. QSL and award information is at:
In the United States this year, the callsigns will once again be K8Y, K8O, K8T, and K8A. Argentina will be active as LR1YOTA, Canada as VC3YOTA and VB7YOTA, El Salvador as YS1YOTA, and Honduras as HQ2YOTA. Amateur radio operators should be encouraged to listen for and contact these stations as well as all callsigns ending in the letters “YOTA” across the globe. Last year, young hams worldwide surpassed their goal of 100,000 QSOs in December, with a final tally of 119,516. Overlapping with YOTA month is round 3 of the YOTA Contest, which is on 30th December 2022 from 1200 to 2359 UTC.
