The monthly ECARC meeting will be cancelled under further notice. The situation surrounding COVID-19 is changing rapidly and thus we are increasingly being urged to practice social distancing. Please use the email reflector and check the ECARC website for any updates. Now is a great time to get on the air and enjoy our great hobby.

During YOTA Month, radio amateurs aged 25 and younger will be on the air as special event stations during December on various bands and modes. In the US, look for K8Y, K8O, K8T, and K8A. Elsewhere in the Americas, VE7YOTA will be on the air from Canada. XR2YOTA in Chile has been added to the list of youth stations in the Americas for YOTA Month. Young hams in other countries may also join in. Listen for other YOTA Month stations with “YOTA” suffixes.
