Contest University, held today just prior to the Dayton Hamvention in Dayton, Ohio was considered by many who attended as the best yet. This was the fourth Contest U (four previous events have been held as part of the Hamvention and four have been held in Europe).
Tim, K3LR, and his crew which included Canadian contesting champion John, VE3EJ, put on a first-class event which was sold out. My unofficial guess at attendance is around 400. Sessions were held on contesting tips, propagation, antenna design, ethics of contesting, software, and lots more. Every participant was feed breakfast and lunch, given a hat (thanks DX Engineering) and a T-shirt plus a breakout book of all the presentations and a CD along with CQ Magazine and The Contesting Journal.

Now after a good night’s sleep it’s off to North America’s largest flea market tomorrow.
