Also in Ohio… YOTA Camp 2022

A nasty thunderstorm was not kind to the YOTA

reported on Twitter that they used their ham
skills to quickly get back on the air. (YOTA

The second annual Youth on the Air (YOTA) Americas summer camp was under way as this was written, based once again at the National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting in southwestern Ohio. Tweets from the group reported that the rooftop antennas on their hotel were damaged by a heavy thunderstorm, but that special event station W8Y managed to quickly get back on the air. They also launched and recovered a high-altitude balloon, among many other activities. We’ll have more details in upcoming issues.
