2018 Banquet Speaker

N2OOWe are pleased to announce that our 2018 Banquet speaker will be Bob Schenk, N200. Bob is a veteran DXer, DXpeditioner and QSL manager, and is CQ magazine's DX Editor.

Licensed in 1965 as WN2RJJ, Bob's introduction to ham radio was the annual Novice Roundup contest, and he has been hooked on DXing and contesting ever since. He is a veteran of more than two dozen DXpeditions to over a dozen countries. He has served as a QSL manager for over 100 DX stations and another 100-plus DXpeditions for more than 35 years. Bob is the founder of the QSL Managers Society, which serves as a single point of contact for stations seeking a QSL manager, works to preserve old DX and DXpedition logs, and promotes a code of ethics among QSL managers.

Bob was inducted into the CQ DX Hall of Fame in 2008. He is president of the International DX Association (INDEXA), president of the South Jersey DX Association, a charter member of the Old Barney Amateur Radio Club, and is trustee of a local repeater. He lives in Tuckerton, New Jersey, with his wife Beth, KF2BQ, and is a father and grandfather.

We look forward to Bob sharing his experiences with us at W9DXCC 2018.
