[Hamvention] Announcing 2017 Dayton Contest University – celebrating 11 years
An announcement that may be of interest from the Contest University Chairman
I am proud to announce that student registration is now open for 2017 Dayton
ConTest University (“CTU”) to be held all day on Thursday May 18, 2017 at
the Crowne Plaza in Dayton, Ohio. http://contestuniversity.com
Check out the NEW CTU Website! http://contestuniversity.com
Eight different countries have hosted CTUs over the eleven years. USA,
Australia, Russia, Germany, Italy, England, Brazil and Finland. Over 5000
students have attended these CTUs with more than 100 CTU Professors sharing
their contesting experiences.
2017 will be the eleventh year in a row for CTU Dayton. To give you an idea
of the quality of the CTU content and activities, the 2016 CTU topics (last
year)are listed on the CTU web site at http://contestuniversity.com
The 2017 CTU Professor line up will be outstanding and is being finalized.
Check the CTU website often for the 2017 Professor updates.
There are scholarships (registration fee) available from CTU through a grant
from the Northern California DX Foundation (NCDXF) for those students 25
years old and younger. Please use the “contact us” button on the CTU website
to get more information.
2017 Student registration information is on the CTU web site
Important – as we did last year – if you want to sign up for CTU 2017 Dayton
and you have given (or will give one by Dayton 2017) a talk about Amateur
Radio to any club, Hamfest or group since May 17, 2016 – you qualify for a
$10.00 registration fee discount. Please choose the “Registration with Club
talk discount” option to get the $10.00 discount. Spreading the word about
amateur radio is lots of fun and can save you money at CTU!
Thanks to all of the CTU sponsors including Icom America, DX Engineering,
the Northern California DX Foundation, the Radio Club of America and CQ
Magazine for making CTU possible. Thanks to K8MNJ and K1SO for all of their
help with CTU. Special thanks to Scott, KA9FOX from QTH.com for hosting and
constructing the brand NEW CTU headquarters web site.
CU in Dayton at CTU 2017 and Merry Christmas,
Contest University Chairman
