via the ARRL: South African Radio League to Host 2018 YOTA Camp

The South African Radio League (SARL) will host the 2018 Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) Summer Camp — although in this case, it will become the “YOTA Winter Camp,” as it’s being held in the Southern Hemisphere. The International Amateur Radio Union Region 1 (IARU-R1) Executive Committee and its Youth Working Group Chair Lisa Leenders, PA2LS, have accepted and approved SARL’s proposal. The annual event brings together young people from Region 1 and elsewhere for a week, creating an opportunity to learn all about different nationalities and cultures, foster international friendships and goodwill, and learn new Amateur Radio skills.

“The SARL and the South African YOTA Working Group are delighted with the response, and we are looking forward to hosting a successful YOTA 2018 event as an unforgettable African experience that will be remembered for many years to come,” SARL said in announcing the 2018 YOTA camp.
