Registration:  https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/821204658 

Mike Fulcher KC7V and Roger Western G3SXW, members of the Voo Doo Contest Group, provide a look at the challenges and excitement of operating the CQWW DX Contest from various West Africa countries.  The presentation is based on Roger’s book Contesting in Africa  ( http://www.idiompress.com/books-contesting-africa.html ) 

“DXpeditions typically are complex operations, especially where the goal is to win a major contest. Long lists of details must be attended to, including licensing, visas, vaccinations as required, transportation, clothing, tools, accommodation, siting, not to mention organizing tons of radio equipment and antennas at the right place at the right time.”
