Fred, AB1OC and I are in Dayton this week for Contest University the the Dayton Hamvention. Yesterday we attended Contest University – a full day of learning about topics related to contesting. Here are some of the highlights:
Frank W3LPL made several presentations during the day. We attended his presentation on the Solar Cycle where we learned about leading indicators of Solar Cycle 25 strength and when each HF band is open to various areas as the current Solar Cycle declines. We also attended his talk on 160 and 80 meter antennas, which will be very important in the next few years as the Solar Cycle declines.
We also attended a talk on SO2R (Single Operator 2 Radio) stations and operating techniques and another by Val NV9L of Ham Nation fame on Log Analysis.
We enjoyed Contest University and we would recommend this to anyone interested in contesting who travels to Dayton.
