More broadly, he is an avid contester and DXer and has been helping get high school students interested in those activities. Connor has paired up with Remote Ham Radio to expand the number of remote ham stations in schools and colleges for youth to operate from anywhere in the world. He has been a pioneer in this endeavor by using his own home station as the first remote youth-only station. Connor has also invited young hams to his home station in the past to compete in the Virginia QSO party, and to operate amateur satellites.
