Webinar Schedule -- September/October:

Created by on 2009-09-01

I am pleased to announce the Webinar schedule for September/October. Things kick off next Wednesday (9/9) with KR2Q's "When GIANTS First Walked the Bands - The Early Days of Multi-Multi contesting." Doug's presentation includes timeless photos and a nostalgic look back at the early days of multi-multi contesting. This is one of those presentations where you can put your feet up and enjoy a great trip down memory lane!

The schedule also includes the first jointly hosted event by PVRC & NCCC. Dean Straw, N6BV, will present "Hints and Kinks for Using HFTA." Myself and Dean N6DE of NCCC had a chance last night to preview some of N6BV's material. This is must see TV (Webinar)!

October programs include a return presentation by Carl Luetzelschwab K9LA on "Propagation Prediction Programs: Their Development and Use", a follow on to his earlier Webinar on Cycle 24. Wally Stefanov, LZ2CJ, will give us a look at the LZ9W contest station and discuss their plans for CQWW 2009. You may have seen some of the pictures Wally has already posted. The LZ9W team has been very busy this summer!

There is one other presentation in the works for October which will be of interest to the entire contest community. Final details are almost complete and the announcement should be out very soon.

Our Webinar webmaster is recovering from surgery so the registration links have not been posted to yet but they will be in the near future. You will be able to find them and earlier events under the "PVRC Webinars" link. In the mean time, use the links below to view dates/times, program descriptions, and registration forms.
