- Greetings Ham Scouts.
Some background info on my other posting:
Not unlike the New England Patriots ! ! ! ,
the New England based Yankee Clipper Contest Club
YCCC has been celebrating a position as
world champs... acutally for 3 years now...
Since a bunch of scouts and dads have gotten
licensed recently, we decided we'd give them a
try at DX CONTESTING... we have a couple
of training sessions lined up so they can learn
computer logging etc. and meet the eligibility
requirements for submitting their score as
part of the YCCC Club Score. With this they'll
get bragging rights and pride of being a part
of a World Championship Team !
... plus they'll get to work lots of DX.
We solicited YCCC members to
$ponsor a Scout's membership fee...
in order to spread the goodwill around a bit!
Plus the QSO's go to the YCCC Team's total!
FYI, Sunday afternoons in these 48 hour
contests are often slow because most everyone
in the contest has worked each other. (relatively!)
So we are hoping this group will have some fun
working from a great contest station, will go at it
and work the world and maybe create a "pile up" of their own
with a fresh new callsign on the air late in the contest.
We'll let you know how the experiment works!
