Youngsters On The Air – YOTA 22 april 2023.

The IARU Region 1 Youth Working Group and the Hungarian Radio Amateur Society (MRASZ) are inviting you to take part in the 1st round of this year’s YOTA Contest on Saturday, April 22nd between 0800 – 1959 UTC.

Make plenty of QSOs with young HAMs from all around the world, or just join in on the contest to support the radio amateur youth and make them enjoy HAM radio even more!

Do you have any children, grandchildren, friends under the age of 25, who might be interested in HAM radio? A YOTA contest is the best time to get them operating!

We’re curious to find the youngest and eldest competitors.

For the sake of those who are not regular contesters, we have created a web-based log keeping program that is very similar to a paper log. With the help of this, they can send a log to the contest. The program can be found on under the name ONLINE QSO-logger. Don’t forget to read the user manual!

Make sure to get your HAM-gear ready and let’s meet on the air on the 22nd!
