Dear fellow Contesters / DXers!

Contest Club Finland (CCF) gladly once again calls all the contesters /
DXers around the whole contesting / DXing world to come and join the great
contesting / DXing company and atmosphere in the CCF's 9th annual Contest /
DX meeting, held on 16-18th January, 2004.

*** QTH will be same as last time: Sokos Hotel Vantaa, Vantaa near Helsinki

Please *BOOK NOW* the third weekend of January 2004, the weekend just before
CQ 160m CW, for visiting this great and unforgettable contest / DX event!

Interesting contesting / DXing related presentations are to be included to
the agenda.

Just DON'T MISS this meeting!

Come and enjoy the great contest / DX related presentations by world top
class contesters / DXers, not to mention the excellent rag-chewing company
of all the fellows so familiar to you from all those big pile-ups! In the
previous meetings we have had already 40+ foreign visitors from CT, DL, ES,
G, HA, JA, LA, OZ, UA, SM, W, YL and ZS etc., not to forget the 100+ OH/OH0
contesters / DXers!

The meeting starts with an enjoyable "gettogether" on Friday evening.
Saturday will be our day of presentations, and when Saturday evening
arrives - it's "party time"! Sunday is more or less the day of getting back
home, but we try to arrange e.g. some local sight-seeing tours for those
with less tight time-schedules.

On our tentative agenda (subject to changes) :

Friday evening:
- Gettogether

- Small station contesting
- Low power contesting from a rare location
- Comparing contest software
- VHF/UHF + 6m contesting
- Contesting in Japan
- Contest DXpeditions
- Educating newcomers
- RTTY contesting round table
- lots of rag-chewing
- ... etc. etc.
