    Virginia QSO Party

    March 21 - 22

    See rules on the web.

    We encourage all hams 18 years and younger to participate.

    A "Youth Plaque" sponsored by the K4AMG Memorial Amateur Radio Club, Inc. will go to the young winner. Everyone that submits a long receives a certificate from VQP.

    I think it is great to see the Youth Categories to encourage the youth to get on during the contests. A lot of the younger hams are operating from compromised stations and by having a youth category it encourages them to get on and play with the big guns and improve their contesting skills. Somewhere around here I have my VAQP Certificate for High Score - Texas from the 2005 VAQP when I was 16.

    Hi Steve

    That is the purpose of our club to encourage youth. Our face book page has Hope Lea KM4IPF age 8 making her first ever on the air QSO. What makes this QSO different it was on OSCAR FO29, using our portable SATCOM station.
