I am pleased to announce that early bird registration (lowest fee until Jan. 31, 2012) is now open for 2012 Dayton Contest University ("CTU") to be held on May 17, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza in Dayton, Ohio.

Five different countries hosted CTU in 2011. USA, Germany, Italy, England and the newest CTU in Brazil. Nearly 1000 students attended these five CTUs with more than 50 Professors sharing their contest experience.

Contest University started as a small gathering by the Yankee Clipper Contest Club (KC1F & others) many years ago. Then the Potomac Valley Radio Club held a Contesting Seminar in 2005. Dayton CTU started in 2007. It is truly amazing to be a part of the explosive growth in contest knowledge sharing.

2012 will be the sixth year for CTU Dayton. The 2012 topics are listed on the CTU web site . There are several excellent 2012 CTU Professor's that will be presenting for the first time this year - N6TR, K3NA, K7NV, XE1KK, W5WZ and K2RD. Also past Professors - who will give new papers this year are W3LPL, K1DG, W0YK, NC0B, W5ZN, W8WWV, K3LR and N6TV.

Details and early bird discounted registration information is on the web site . Important - as mentioned at CTU Dayton last year - if you want to sign up or CTU 2012 Dayton and you have given (or will give by Dayton 2012) a talk about Amateur Radio Contesting to any club, hamfest or group since May 20, 2011 - you qualify for a $10.00 registration fee discount. Please choose the "Registration w/Discount" option above to get the $10.00 discount. Spreading the word about contesting is lots of fun and can save you money!

Thanks to all of the CTU sponsors for making CTU possible. Icom America,, DX Engineering, CQ Magazine and INRAD. Special thanks to Scott, KA9FOX from for hosting and constructing the CTU web site.

Happy New Year and Very 73,

Tim K3LR
