Youth Contest Program (YCP)
Youth members from IARU Region 1 member societies are invited to take part in a contest from so called “Top-Gun” stations. These young HAM’s will learn how to operate the contest station, improve their contest skills and will aim for the best results together as a team. Further, get to know the host country and meet up with local ham radio operators. Make new friends, network amongst each other, share knowledge and have a great time.
