RadioSport: the competitive aspect of Ham radio
One of the biggest names in a special contact sport — radio contesting — will speak at a public meeting in Winona at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 21. One of the world’s premier contesters, Scott Wright, K0MD, editor of “National Contest Journal,” will talk about radiosport, how it is done and what fun it is. The program is open to the public. Winona Amateur Radio club meetings are at 7 p.m., at the Winona County Office Building, 202 West Third Street, Winona.
Wright’s talk will also cover the Olympics of Ham Radio contesting, the World Radiosport Team Championship, WRTC 2018, which will be held in Germany in mid-July.
Radiosport demands great skill for success, skill that translates into ordinary, daily Ham radio operations.
Wright is the new editor of the “National Contest Journal” and president of the Rochester DX and Contes Club. Assisting him will be well-known area Hams and contesters including Bill Lippert, AC0W, president of Minnesota Wireless Association; Fred Regennitter, K4IU; Paul Bittner, W0AIH; Roger Wise, KI0F; and Mike Mullen, N0BUI, among others.
