Youth Essay Contest Deadline Extended

The Intrepid-DX Group has extended the submission deadline for its 2021 Youth "Dream Rig" Essay contest to November 15. Young hams age 19 or younger are invited to submit a two-page essay on how amateur radio can "evolve to remain relevant in the age of the Internet." Those who submitted essays last year are invited to do so again. 

The winner will receive a new ICOM IC-7300 transceiver, as long as he/she agrees to use the radio on the air and not to sell or trade it for at least one year. Submissions should be in text or Microsoft Word files and should be emailed to <intrepiddxgroup@gmail.com> by November 15. Questions should be directed to <pauln6pse@gmail.com>. The winner will be announced on December 1.
