On Tuesday, October 25th, a Contest University will be presented by the Yankee Clipper Contest Club (YCCC). The Philips Amateur Radio Club (PARC) will be hosting this unique opportunity to learn about contesting from some of the top-level contesters in the area!
The event will take place at the Philips Electronics facility, conveniently located near route 93 in Andover, MA.
Professors K1DG, K5ZD, and K1RX will be on hand to present tips, tricks, and techniques for maximizing your contest performance! Topics will be adjusted for audience interest, but will typically include:
- Maximizing score with limited station
- Maximizing score with limited operating time
- Propagation – what’s expected this year
- Operating tips for running, S&P, DO’s and DON’Ts
- Sleep strategy
The event will take place from 6 to 11 pm. Philips employees will act as hosts/escorts for non-Philips attendees. We will take a collection for pizza and drinks.
If you are interested in attending, there is no fee, but you MUST PRE-REGISTER. Send an email to barockteer(at)aol.com or k1kp(at)arrl.net with your full name and callsign, and US citizenship status. You will be emailed detailed directions to the event to confirm your registration.
This will also count as a YCCC Local Meeting, and new members are welcome to join YCCC at this time.
