The Florida Contest Group

"I love contesting. There is something about the camaraderie, discipline and knowledge contesting demands that fits me; it doesn't fit everyone . . . but it sure fits me." - Jim White, K4OJ (SK)

The Florida Contest Group

The Florida Contest Group (FCG), an ARRL affiliated club, is Florida's amateur radio contest club. It's members share a common interest in the sport of amateur radio contesting. FCG members have a wide range of contesting experience, from beginners to World Champions. They willingly share their knowledge and skills to promote ham radio contesting in Florida. Members, who number in excess of 200, range from Jacksonville to South Florida. FCG has a "Panhandle" division for those contesters living in the Florida Panhandle who are outside the ARRL's 175 mile "club circle".

The Florida Contest Group supports and encourages all types of contesting, from HF to light, all modes, power classes and skill levels.

Keeping In Touch

Communications is key to amateur radio. The Florida Contest Group uses several methods to communicate with its members, including frequent area meetings, the Gazette newsletter and a club e-mail reflector. All of these methods are used to inform members of what the club is doing, and to encourage, support and help each other in our contest activities.

Meetings

While the ARRL no longer specifies meeting requirements for club members, the FCG continues to hold face-to-face meetings as often as possible. These meetings are usually held in conjunction with major hamfests, such as Melbourne, Orlando, Tampa and Ft. Walton Beach. Occasionally, meetings are also held at members' homes. Non-members are welcome to attend to find out more about the FCG or about contesting in general.

Orlando HamCation®

The 2016 Orlando Contest Dinner will be held February 12, during the Orlando HamCation®, February 12 - 14, 2016.
