What makes a proficient contester? What makes a good operator? For most of us, it takes years. Practice, participation and persistence are key factors.
Contesters are a truly elite bunch who possess unique operating skills—things which we’re not born with and that are not covered or learned by reading any radio’s manual, or Handbook, or on the neighborhood repeater, or down at the local radio club.
Using over 24 hours of raw material, K4ZA has edited and collected the experience, wisdom, and opinions of 50 of today’s contesters in one place—a special, two-disc DVD compilation (VHS tapes are also available on special order).
Contest Video Essay, A Look At Radiosport provides some unique and personal insights into this aspect of ham radio. The DVD set originally sold for $40. Visitors to this web page can buy it now for $25, postpaid, shipped via Media Mail.
