To all YCCC members, ARRL members, friends around the world!

The Yankee Clipper Contest Club celebrates it's 30th year of competing in the unlimited club category from the Northeastern US. Now having close to a membership count of nearly 400, the club has steadily been growing since its inception (1977), the current officers of the YCCC offer the following on-the-air fun event for both the membership as well as our fellow contesters worldwide.

For the balance of 2007, commencing immediately, YCCC members may sign their calls /30, indicating our 30 year anniversary, used as a way to positively promote the YCCC on the air. A special certificate will be provided after confirming contacts with at least 10 members. This confirmation and request for the special certificate can be done via email at Please indicate the date, time, frequency, call sign of member along with your mailing address so we might send you the certificate. QSL cards may be used to confirm these contacts as well and by sending them to Dave, W1CTN who will administer the program.

Additionally, the complete list of YCCC members can be found at then click on "Members Only" and follow the directions to enter the site (open to all). Look up "roster" for the complete list of members active within the YCCC. The following special calls will be active during the New England QSO Party this weekend to help kick the activity off. They will not be signing /30 for this particular event as many may be mobile, already signing "/county". Check for full details of this big operating event.


All QSO's with YCCCers should be completed by December 31, 2007, request for the certificate should be submitted no later than February, 1, 2008.

QSL's may be sent to David Arruzza, W1CTN, 32 Benz Street, Ansonia, CT 06401

Also for those attending the Dayton Hamvention, watch for the special YCCC 30th badges members will be wearing and congratulate them when you see them!


Mark, K1RX/30 Good luck and happy hunting!
