Click HERE to learn how the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) supports youth in amateur radio.


YOTA is a quickly growing group of young radio amateurs from IARU (International Amateur Radio Union) Region 1 (Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Northern Asia). It is their goal to get more young people interested in amateur radio and grow the amateur radio community. Even if you don’t live in this region, you might enjoy seeing their activities.
