    Youth Contesting Program (YCP)


    UPDATED: New contests added for 2018!

    In 2018 the Youth Contesting Program (YCP) of IARU R1 will be continued. Youth members from IARU R1 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.

    A youngster will probably be coming for the first time to the host country and will get the chance to experience this country and share amateur radio knowledge with local youngsters.


    Contest locations:

    ·  ES5TV: ARI International DX contest (5-6 May 2018)

    ·  9A1A: CQ M International DX contest (12-13 May 2018)

    ·  EC2DX: His Maj. King of Spain contest (23-24 June 2018) Application deadline 1 April

    ·  4O3A: CQWW RTTY contest (29-30 September 2018) Application deadline 1 June


    Do you want to take part in of the contests from these stations?    Apply here.

    Read stories and watch pictures of previous events to get a feeling of what to expect.



    ·  Young people aged under 26 years.

    ·  1 or 2 participants per member society

    ·  All levels of contest experience are accepted. A participant should have at least basic knowledge about contesting and using a transceiver.

    ·  Member societies are asked to select young people who are willing to experience a contest in a “big-gun”station, eager to learn more about amateur radio and who are aiming to get the best results out of the contest. A group of ±6 international youngsters and ±6 domestic youngsters will take part per contest.

    ·  Participants are asked to fund their own travel costs. All other costs will be covered.


    When taking part in a 24 hours contest the participant will arrive on Friday and leave on Monday.

    This is an example time schedule from 9A1A:

    ·   Friday: Coming to host city (in our case Zagreb ). Social event in late afternoon and evening hours. Sleeping  in one of Zagreb hostels.

    ·   Saturday – Sunday: Travel to contest location (in 9A1A case ca 40 km). Introduction of contest location capacities and possibilities.

    ·   Team will take part in the contest.

    ·   Team will sleep on Sunday/Monday night on contest location.

    ·   Monday: Travel to home.

    Date                      : May 8, 2018

    Subject                : Invitation to the first Dutch Kingdom Contest in June 2018




    Dear OM’s/YLs,


    On behalf of the Dutch Kingdom Amateur Radio Society (DKARS) we would like to invite you and your fellow radio amateurs to participate in the third Dutch Kingdom Contest which is scheduled to take place, on the first weekend of June which is:

    2 and 3 of June 2018.



    The purpose of this contest is to show the consistency of the countries within the Kingdom of The Netherlands to the rest of the world, also give Dutch amateurs residing abroad a role in it, and last but not least, we also want to show young people how versatile and interesting our radio hobby can be.


    The date and time of this contest are 100% simultaneous to the IARU CW Fieldday, but we are not meaning to interfere with it as the contest exchange is the same (599+serial). We hope to generate more activity on the band so both contests can benefit!


    After the contest the logs can be submitted to our website robot at:


    The rules for the Dutch Kingdom Contest can also be found at our website link above.


    For any further questions or comments, you can contact the DKARS Secretary via: secretaryatdkars [dot] nl (secretary@dkars.nl)

    We hope to hear you in the contest!

    Secretary of the DKARS and contest manager

  • Real Time Score Cluster

    Real Score Cluster full functional test

    The next great step in the The Real Score Cluster implementation just happened. We did the first full functional cluster test during the last ARRL DX CW contest. All the 100% score postings from over 300 contesters were shared between two scoreboard servers cqcontest.net and COSB for the first time!  We didn’t notice any significant gaps during that testing.

    Thanks for all  the Real Score Cluster guys who did a lot to make this event a big success:

    • Dmitry, R4WW the CQcontest.net owner
    • Bruce, WA7BNM the distributor server creator

    How that works:

    => All the incoming traffic to the Distribution server (or Score distributor) is forwarding to COSB and CQcontest

    => All the incoming traffic to the COSB is forwarding to the Distribution server and after- to the CQcontest .

    => All the incoming traffic to the CQcontest is forwarding to the Distribution server and after – to the COSB 

    We still have a lot of things to be done to finish the Real Score Cluster infrastructure basement.  Unfortunately during this period might be not all postings to be shared or they could be shared partially.

    You could be a part of the project! The best you can do to help us would be configuring your logger to send your scores to the Distribution server ( http://www.b41h.net/scoredistrib... ).

    Please read https://contestonlinescore.com/blog/documents/ how to set up your logger to be ready for the Real Score cluster the most efficient way.
