The 2019 CLARA certificate will be called the YLs from Around the World Challenge Certificate. How many YLs can you contact in one (1) year?

RULES:

1.  Talk to YLs. All contacts must be made during the 2019 year (January 1 - December 31, 2019).
2.  Contacts may be made on any band the YL is licensed to be on, and any mode including SSB, CW, all digital modes, Echo-link, and repeaters.
3.  Contacts may be made during nets only if the net control allows it.
4.  This certificate is available ONLY to YLs.
6. You must make your contact on air, whichever mode you are using.
7. You may only use the same YL (ex. Val, VE5ACJ) once.  (Sorry, but the idea is talk to as many different YLs around the world rather than the same one over and over.)
8.  Your goal is to contact YLs from each province and as many YLs from the USA and also around the world
9.  I am not asking for a log, but use whatever method you need to keep track of how many YLs you contact in the year. Then send me your numbers. This is an honour system.

Applications may be submitted by:  ve5aq@sasktel.net  or mail to:
Val Lemko.  1125 Iroquois St. W.   Moose Jaw,   Saskatchewan.   Canada,   S6H 5C1.

You do not need a log, you may keep one if you wish, just as long as you send me your final number of YLs that you spoke to. If you do not have a log, please remember that this is an honour system.  Please don't count YLs you do not have.
