Via Southgate: Young Amateurs Radio Club to host inaugural special event

The Young Amateurs Radio Club (YARC) will host their first annual youth-organized special event from September 1 – 15. Using their call sign, WY 4 RC, the event is known as ‘Worked All YARC Zones (WAYZ).’ Operators will be activating WY4RC stations from all 10 US call zones. Different awards are available for youth operators who activate a station, and for those who contact at least six WY4RC stations.

Any young amateur or club interested in operating during the event can find the rules and additional information at the Young Amateurs Radio Club website.

YARC, founded in 2017, is an international amateur radio club with a focus on promoting adoption and innovation in amateur radio among young people. In 2018 the club was officially recognized by the FCC as an official amateur radio club under the call sign WY4RC.

YARC has over 1,000 members on their Discord server as of 2022, and has been changing its structure to bring back community events and increase engagement.
