Pubs Clubs On The Air PACOTA NEXT EVENT May 15th/16th/17th 2020

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 in 2017 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 in May 2018.  Six Stations took part, this year we added to that list with 10 stations taking part.

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 pacota@g6tw.org.uk and we will send you some details, hints and tips.

Maybe you need a certain bit of kit to enhance your Station, get it on your “Christmas List” now ready for next May’s activation.

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.
