YOTA Group Earns AMSAT Satellite Communicators Club Awards

Faith Hannah Lea, AE4FH, reports from the YOTA Camp in South Africa,
that about 20 youth members from the Camp made their first satellite
contacts. The group had launched a BACAR (Balloon Carrying Amateur
Radio) - a high altitude balloon with various radio equipment on-board
to explore near-space. While waiting for the data to return from the
BACAR package, the YOTA group operated from grid KG43 on multiple
satellites, ranging from SO-50, AO-91, & AO-92. "All the YOTA ZS9
members, who made their first satellite contact will receive the AMSAT
Satellite Communicators Club Award" said Bruce Paige, KK5DO, AMSAT
Director, Contests & Awards.

Thirteen-year-old Faith Hannah Lea, AE4FH, of Palm Coast, Florida, is
the only representative of International Amateur Radio Union Region 2
(IARU R-2) at the Youngster On The Air Camp 2018 this week in South
Africa. The YOTA ZS 2018 Camp has eighty participants aged from 16
to 25, and from over 30 countries that have been invited to attend a
fun-filled week of Amateur Radio from the 8th to the 15th August 2018.
