The presentation is an introduction to contesting, a discussion of serious competition, including the world radiosport team championship, contest DXpeditioning, and some highlights of nearby contest stations. We’ll cover everything from what to do to get involved, to a fun drone video of some of the largest stations in the world, and audio recordings of the highest level of competition.
