December Youngsters On The Air (YOTA) month 2014....

The Chair of the IARU Region 1 Youth Working Group, Lisa Leenders PA2LS, has been updating the Youngsters On The Air Month page.

During December several countries will become active with YOTA as the suffix for the call sign. 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

They report there will be 35 or more special callsigns active this year!
As well as Europe there are special calls from Africa, Asia and even the Caribbean.

A big thanks to everyone who has put her/his time into this event! Together we can make YOTA even bigger!

HamCollege.TV - A Podcast for New Hams or Those Interested in The Hobby....

Ham College is a show for those new to the hobby and those wishing to get into Amateur Radio. But us old guys should find it a good review and probably learn some things we missed (or forgot) the first time around.

We'll help you study for your Amateur license exam and cover topics to get you up to speed and having fun.

If the pilot turns out good and draws enough interest, this show will be coming in 2015.

While the show covers FCC licensing, much of the content should be applicable in other areas of the world.
