Pubs & Clubs On The Air - PACOTA

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 I propose 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 will take place on Saturday 12th May 2018.


If you or your Radio club or Society are interested in taking part and putting on a station please complete the Web Entry Form below 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.


Yours in Radio,


Chris Wiseman - GØRDK - Event Organiser
