DXCC/Contest Dinner

Special Guest Jeff Briggs

Join your fellow hams for a delicious DXCC/Contest dinner on the first night of the convention. Accompanying us will be Jeff Briggs, K1ZM/VY2ZM, recounting the story of the 7O6T DXpedition to Yemen in 2012.

A retired commercial banker and living with his wife Miriam (KC1HHH) on Prince Edward Island, Jeff is both a contester and a lowband Dx'er with a special interest in 160m. He enjoys participating in most of the major contests each season including CQWW/ARRL DX/CQWPX and the 160m contests.

Jeff is a member of the CQ Contest Hall of Fame and the FOC Operators Club, and has participated in many DXpeditions including ZX0F, NP4A, ZX5J, A61AJ, 7O6T and others. Adding to his ham radio repertoire, Jeff was the principal founder of the Yankee Clipper Contest Club (YCCC) and its first President in 1977/78.


Attendees will have their choice of a chicken, fish, or vegetarian meal.
