Contesting University at Dayton 2008

Contest UniversityI’m a bit late getting to this, but the successful Contesting University held last year at the Dayton Hamvention now has open registration for the 2008 session.

The biggest twist to this year’s session is that there will be Graduate level sessions for those — and only those — that attended the 2007 session.

Feedback on the sessions from 2007 was very good. If you will be at Dayton this year, consider taking these sessions.


Registration is now open. Registration costs $75.00 until January 31st, 2008, then moves to $80.00 from February 1st to February 28th, 2008.

Scholarships Available

Scholarships for those under 25 years old or younger are available. You need to contact the sponsors for information.


  • Held Thursday, May 15, 2008, from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM
  • Held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dayton, Ohio
  • Breakfast and lunch included

All of the sessions are taught by veteran contesters. I’ve seen some of the information provided from the 2007 contest and it would be worth your time and dollars to attend.

And, at no charge, you get to meet some really great people.

Everything says start time is 8:30. Do classes start at 8:30? What time does registration open up? What time is the breakfast?

Hi Dave,

I do not know the answers to your questions. The registration is closed as of April 3oth, so I don’t know if you are registered or not.

If you are registered, I’d suggest sending your questions in on the contact form. If you’re not registered, it would be too late to join in. I’m not going to Dayton, so can’t be of much help here.
