  • To assist our members in the development of their operating and technical skills
  • To win the club competition of the major amateur radio contests

We would love to have you join the “crew”!

The YCCC was founded in April 1977 and now boasts over 300 members located from New York City to Maine, Cape Cod to Upstate NY plus Canada.  YCCC members have excelled in all areas of amateur radio contesting, DXing, technical design, and public service.
