Marco, Michael

 

and same for me. I hoped it would arrive in time for next weeks vacation -  but looks like it'll arrive when I'm away (at best).

So couldn't resist this morning and clicked on the Kindle version :-)

Hi all,

I ordered my copy last week but it need some more days to Germany.

But good news for all European readers: Jim will visit Friedrichshafen. 
I think we will schedule a book-signing session at the WRTC booth.

So...who has read "Contact Sport" that was at WRTC-2014 ? Did Jim get 
it right, in your opinion ? Was too much emphasis placed in some 
areas, and too little in others ?

I have read it cover-to-cover, and gave it 5 stars on Amazon and a 
thumbs up !

CONTACT SPORT

"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."
