Youth on the Air (YOTA)
A number of pupils participated Youth on the Air on Friday last week. This is a national event to showcase amateur radio communications. The children had fun speaking to other amateur radio enthusiasts across Europe, in Poland, Italy, Majorca, Ukraine, Greece, Hungary and Portugal. They were also able to send and receive Morse code messages to each other, find a hidden transmitter using triangulation and used professional radios. It was a fun event which we are very thankful to Hilderstone Radio Club volunteers for coming in to run for us.
