What is Contest University (Word of the Day)?

Contest University is an annual one-day seminar/workshop in Dayton, Ohio, held the day before Hamvention. Top Amateur Radio contesters, including members of the CQ Amateur Radio Hall of Fame, impart their years of practical knowledge gained from battling in the contesting trenches to help attendees get an edge and improve their scores. It’s an information-packed day! Check out these videos from Contest University .
