|Friday Evening DXCC Dinner with Keynote Speaker Jeff Jolie, NM1Y
Jeff is an active DXer who operates from Carribean island of Saba. He calls Connecticut home, but he is just back from the Navassa Island DXpedition, where he was one of fourteen operators that were part of this adventure to the "World's #1 Most Wanted" Island.
The DXpedition took fifteen years of planning, so there is plenty to tell us about.
|Saturday Evening Banquet with Keynote Speaker Gordon West, WB6NOA
Most hams know Gordo as the man behind those ham radio instruction books.
With awards like Hamventions's "Man of the Year" and ARRL's "Instructor of the Year",
his classes, offered through W5YI, have brought him notoriety.
In his spare time, Gordo also volunteers with the American Red Cross communications team in Orange County,
California and provides free classes to CERT members. To put a fun spin on the weekend, Gordo will present
PASS THE HAM, a fun banquet speech with LIVE recorded ham audio and several live electronic demo gags! While
fun and upbeat, it also underscores our Part 97.1 mission, EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS: You'll hear life
and death ham radio calls from disaster areas.
