Join your fellow hams for a delicious DXCC/Contest dinner on the first night of the convention. Accompanying us will be Don Greenbaum, N1DG, telling the story of his upcoming trip to Baker Island, as part of the KH1/KH7Z DXpedition.
Don was a banker on Wall Street, and in the early 1980s, became Treasurer of Commodore International. The job at Commodore took him all over the world and he began operating from exotic DX locations as well. During this time, Don wrote one of the very first ham radio logging programs in BASIC for the Commodore 64 later ported it to DOS for IBM compatibles.
Adding to his ham radio repertoire, Don has been on several major DXpeditions including VP8ORK, K4M and A52A. He has also operated as A61AD, A51DG, A73A, and /KH9, /VP9, /VS6, /BV2, /4X and /9V, and has been inducted into the CQ DX Hall of Fame by CQ Magazine.
Attendees will have their choice of a chicken, fish, or vegetarian meal.
The DXCC/Contest dinner will feature a grand door prize of an Elecraft K2 HF Transceiver Package, featuring the Elecraft K2 HF Transceiver, KSB2 SSB Option, KNB2 Noise Blanker, MH4 Hand Microphone, and Elecraft Logo Hat!
Tickets are likely to sell quickly, so make sure to get your tickets online when they are available.
Doors will open at 6:30 PM on Friday at the Federal room.
