In the first week of August 2016 the IARU‘s Youth Event YOTA came to Wagrain in Austria organised by OEVSV.

YOTA is a youthcamp for hamradio enthusiasts. There were a lot of activities including SummitsOnTheAir, a trip to the worlds largest Icecave and Hohenwerfen castle, lots of workshops about digital voice, wspr, LTE, antenna building and even a contact to the International Space Station.

During the whole week our station OE2YOTA (special callsign) was on air with a 40m antenna tower (Thanks to DP6T) and we made over 7500 QSO’s

My family and me were part of the staff team and we contibuted the official Yota Newsflash, a short newsclip with each day’s activitys, filmed, edited and published every day. My father and me also held two of the workshops: one for building a High-Z HF Antenna and one for building and configuring a RaspberryPi WSPR Beacon.

During the week I met a lot of incredible new friends and we all had a great time.

So as hams say: 73 de OE1LBS


Here are my slides of the WSPR Workshop

And here is an examplatory newsflash (Check out all of them on vimeo.com/channels/yota2016):
