This year 114 Youngsters from 29 countries in IARU Region 1 and even one country from IARU Region 2 will gather in Wagrain, Austria. We will meet each other, talk about our hobby and most of all have fun. The Youngsters on the Air will be active again during the entire month of December. The idea for this event is to introduce the amateur radio hobby to young persons and to encourage them to be active on the amateur radio waves.
