Pubs Clubs On The Air PACOTA May 10-12th 2019

The fairly recent wave of “OTA” events, be it Summits, Museums, Railways, Churches, Mills, JOTA etc, seems to be a good way of spreading the word of Amateur Radio to the general public, and hopefully increasing our numbers.

With this in mind last year I proposed a new “OTA”, PACOTA, “Pubs and Clubs On The Air”.

As well as increasing Amateur numbers it may help to attract more regulars, something everyone in this trade would probably welcome.  The event took place last May.  Six Stations took part, this year hopefully we will add to that list.

If you or your Radio club or Society are interested in taking part and putting on a station please complete the Web Entry Form here or alternatively e-mail and we will send you some details, hints and tips.

Don’t be under any illusions though, events such as this are hard work and need careful planning and preparation, this is not just an excuse for an inebriation in an Oast House.
