About the Book
SUSPENSE and CONTROVERSY in RADIO’S BIGGEST COMPETITION. In the woods of Massachusetts, pairs of contestants huddle in tents filled with communications equipment. Their voices soar through the air, riding waves into the atmosphere, as they comb through static and noise for a response from the other side of the world. They’re searching for loot in the form of other voices in the sky. The rarer their contact, the more valuable their treasure.
A major new book describes the exciting world of amateur radio competition and the intriguing characters of the 2014 World Radiosport Team Championship. The competitors hail from across the planet, from youthful challengers to veterans with decades of radiosporting experience. Meet fascinating personalities as they battle computer malfunctions, getting lost, and staying at the top of their game for 24 hours in a hot, stuffy tent. The final scores bring surprises, disappointments, even a recount, and decades-long friendships will be stressed in the fight for the crown of amateur radio, the ultimate “contact sport.” Follow the action as the teams dance upon the radio waves. See who will be crowned champions of their sport.
Contact Sport is a wonderful book, written not only for knowledgeable amateur radio operators, but also for their children and grandchildren, to open the wonders of science and radio magic to all ages.
