YOTA Plans Trio of Sprint-Type Contests

Europe's Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) program will be sponsoring a new series of sprint-type contests in which the age of the operator you work determines the point value of the contact. According to the ARRL Letter, there will be three 12-hour events this year – May 22, 0800-1959 UTC; July 17, 1000-2159 UTC; and December 30, 1200-2359 UTC. 

The contest exchange will be the age of each operator and a greater point value will be assigned to the youngest operators. Modes will be CW and SSB only, with contest contacts permitted on 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters. For more information, visit the YOTA Region 1 contest page at <https://ham-yota.com/contest>.
