Join your fellow hams for a delicious DXCC/Contest dinner on the first night of the convention! Accompanying us will be Adrian Ciuperca, KO8SCA. Adrian is a keen DXer with DXCC 315, 9BDXCC, IOTA and a passionate contester who participated in WRTC 2018 in Wittenberg, Germany. He usually operates in the contests as a guest operator from various superstations such as K1LZ, LZ5R, K1TTT or NR4M.
Adrian has been licensed since 1990 as YO8SCA while in high school. After finishing his university studies in computer science, he moved to USA where he obtained the vanity call KO8SCA. He currently lives in New York where he works as an IT consultant. The technical side and the lure of the DX are what first attracted Adrian to the hobby. He enjoys travelling and loves to combine it with ham radio whenever possible.
Adding to his ham radio repertoire, Adrian has participated in many DXpeditions to destinations including V8, TX0M/TX0A, 6O, 9M0, FJ, FM, J3, J8, VK9C, VK9X, VP5, VP9, and Z2. Recently he has been a guest operator at 4U1UN and HV0A. His next DXpedition planned is ZK3 in October 2019.
Attendees will have their choice of a chicken, fish, or vegetarian meal.
The DXCC/Contest dinner will feature a grand door prize, but we're still figuring out exactly what it will be.
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.
