YOTA Camp On the Air July 16-21

The Youth on the Air Americas summer camp station will be on the air from July 16-21 and will be looking to contact you! This year's YOTA camp is being held on the campus of Carlton University in Ottawa, Ontario. Special event station VE3YOTA will be active from there, from the Diefenbunker Cold War Museum in nearby Carp, and from a two-for-one Parks On the Air (POTA) location. A contact with the International Space Station is also scheduled.

According to a YOTA Americas news release, activation of the VE3YOTA callsign will begin on Sunday, July 16 and conclude at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 21. Youth will operate the station as they finish projects, between sessions, and during free time. Opening and closing ceremonies and the ISS contact will be streamed live on YouTube.
