Contesting!

Lets explore “radiosport” or contesting, logging, spotting etc. to some Amateur operators this IS what Ham radio is all about, to others it is just another facet of a large and growing set of sub-topics in this Hobby.

We will attempt to cover some basics and try to expand into the more extreme contests and modes used for contesting.

Many of you know of Tim Duffy K3LR owner of DXengineering, his over the top multi-operator “Super Station” and his leadership in the contesting world. Our first presentation was designed and presented for Contest University, one of Tim Duffy’s pet projects:
