There’s Still Time to Register for Virtual Contest University 2021

If you’re serious about improving your contesting scores, or maybe you’re new to the art of radiosport or are simply out of practice, you won’t want to miss Virtual Contest University 2021, May 20, 9 am to 5 pm EDT. Hosted by Tim Duffy, K3LR, DX Engineering CEO, the webinar is free and open to all.

Just click this link to register, fill in your information, and join on Zoom the day of the event. And because it’s online, there are no limits on the number of attendees. Last year, 3,000 Hams from all corners of the globe tuned in. You can watch all ten hours of 2020’s event here.

Win an ICOM Radio

Need another reason to log on and learn? How about the chance to walk away with an ICOM radio just for being online? FourICOM radios will be given away at random times during the event. To win, you must be registered and present on Zoom when the drawing takes place.
