A pdf version of the AGENDA which give times for the forums is now online. I will try to get a Word (doc) and html version but with all the last minute plannings, I can't guarantee I will get it up before the convention.
For those coming in on Thursday evening, Aug. 1st, I have some exciting news. This forum will be given by Joe Eisenberg K0NEB! If his name sounds familiar, he is the same person who gave the kit building talk at Dayton in May. We are very happy to have him at the Convention. He will talk about the basics of kit building, including some of the basic tools you will need to get started and discuss some of the kits that are available. In addition, several kits built by Joe and various YLs will be available for all to see. If you have built a kit and would like to have it featured and shown off, be sure to bring it with you.
The forum will occur on Friday evening, Aug. 2nd. It will include a talk by Ann WA1S about her DXpedition to Kingman Reef, Vicky AE9YL about her YK9A trip and Jan WA2YL about her DXpedition to Niue Island. Following their talk will be a Q & A session for people to ask questions about DXpeditions, how the YLs got to go, what is involved, etc.
There will be special event station in the hospitality suite starting Thursday, Aug. 1st and running through Sunday, Aug. 4th. We will be using the call, W8WRJ, which is the memorial call for the Chix YL Club. Any licensed YL attending the convention is encouraged to get on the air and make contacts. Do not worry if you are not licensed or do not have HF priviledges, we will make there is a control station there so you can get on the air.
