HOW ALL BEGAN - THE IDEA
On 25. august 2012, in Eeklo, Belgium, a team of young radioamaterus
from different European countries, which were paricipants on European
YOTA meeting, came with an idea to create so called
which is sked (monthly meeting on HF), that take place every first
in month on HF band.
The creators of idea were:
- Geoffrey, F4FVI
- Pascal, PD9PSG
- Mari, OH2FPK
- Kati, OH2FKX
- Gregor, S53SL
- Markus, DL2MGW
Idea as it was in the begining
Date and time
- Stay in contact after youngster meeting
- Promote youth hams on HF
- Try and get youngsters to be more active.
- Allow young SWLs to listen in on other youngsters, more
- To show that youngsters are active.
- Once a month -> every
Sunday of the month.
- 40 meters: 7.050 – 7.100
- 20 meters:
if needed 14.200 - 14.300
- Frequency will be announced before the sked.
- A website especially for young HAMs.
- Maybe more in the future to help young HAMs.
Pascal, PD9PSG came on idea to set up a web page where
about sked would be and also other useful information for young ham
radio operators and those who want to become, or the topic is
interesting for them. I must also say thanks to him
some money to buy the domain and by that supporting the
and promoting ham radio to young people.
The history has continued and the page changed it's purpose and became
official YOTA page. Due some problems in communication, we lost our
page and for same reasons don't want to continue using it for
Youngsters QSO sked. So we decided to upgrade archive page and now it
has also got new domain, YoungHamQSO.eu.pn, later (now) YoungHam.QSO.club
