OVARC Membership Meeting, July 15, 2022
Meeting Presentation Topic:
Contesting and Improving Your Score
by: Doug Grant, K1DG
Did you operate Field Day? Did the contest bug bite and leave you curious about how to get better at this game? 
Doug Grant, K1DG, has been contesting since 1967. His first contest score, in the 1968 Novice Roundup, was a whopping TWO QSOs! He then operated Field Day with his local club, and has gone on to win most of the major contests, both from his own stations and with multiop teams in the U.S. and DX locations. He holds several records, including the phone CQWW USA record and CQ160M USA record. He also won a gold medal and two bronze medals at the World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC, often referred to as the "Olympics of Ham Radio") and was inducted into the CQ Contest Hall of Fame in 2015. He is also the author of "Amateur Radio Contesting for Beginners", published by ARRL.
Doug will share ways to improve your contest score based on his 50+ years of experience.
The in-person meeting location is as follows:

If you are joining in person, although we will not require you to wear a mask, the CDC and the Pima County Health Department suggest that any unvaccinated people wear masks when attending indoor events. Masks are also suggested and encouraged for vaccinated people given the current situation in the Tucson metro area. So, please use your best judgement on this matter in considering your own health and the health of others.
