GB17YOTA has been busy since the first evening with countries
competing for the most QSOs! Have you worked them on the air or seen
our live updates from the shack?

Young radio amateurs from around the world have arrived and are
enjoying the start of YOTA 2017 despite their long journeys. Two
members of the German team cycled all the way amazing stuff!
What is wrong with all that is that the emphasis is on age and not
on technical interest or experimentation; the very things that attracted
us when we were young WITHOUT all those unnecessary
Also, what was that trivially simple radio magazine that the RSCB
started that died the death?
As Spike said, along the lines of, the youth initiative has failed
therefore we need more youth initiatives.
Those who go one to achieve, don't let temporary set backs stop them
from trying again. Conversing, under achievers, like those who don't
finish projects (eg your vapourware 'dream receiver' - how long has it
been 40 years +?) are daunted by set backs and constantly whine, blame
I'm not one for using quotes but here you could learn from, although I
doubt you will:
"Success is not final. Failure is not fatal: it is the courage to
continue that counts." (Winstone Churchill)
"At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and
your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and
integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As
long as you blame others for the reason you aren't where you want to be,
you will always be a failure." (Erin Cummings)
Had you found the courage to continue, you wouldn't the whining, under
achieving failure, who blames others for your predicament.
